Improved screening protocols for drought tolerance under screenhouse and confined field conditions are being developed. Permission from the Colombian National Biosafety Committee has given CIAT an excellent opportunity to evaluate gene technology under confined conditions. Our goal is to evaluate transgenic technology in upland rice, and to select superior lines under both normal and drought conditions. A Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) manual was also prepared and put into practice.
