Physiological and genetic investigation of agronomic characteristics in rice: NERICAs, African rice (O. glaberrima) and Asian rice (O. sativa)

Published on 28 April 2010

Research Areas




Start Date: 1 January 2008 | End Date: 30 December 2012


This is a spill-over project from IHP. O. glaberrima lines and NERICAs possessing agronomically-useful characteristics were identified in IHP. Those characteristics become targets of the physiological and morphological elucidation of the mechanisms or of detailed physiological characterization in this project. Information on the mechanisms of the characteristics will become useful feedback to the breeding program.
