Breeding resilient and productive genotypes adapted to drought-prone rainfed ecosystem of India
Drought is the predominant cause of yield reduction in rainfed rice production systems, but until recently, little systematic effort has been made to breed drought-tolerant cultivars. The complex nature of drought tolerance, ...
Developing aerobic rice cultivars for water-short irrigated and drought-prone rainfed areas in the tropics
Aerobic rice is a production system in which rice is direct seeded and grown in nonpuddled and nonflooded aerobic soils. Aerobic rice varieties need to be developed to cope with the increasing water scarcity in tropical ...
Implications of genotype × input interactions in breeding superior genotypes for favorable and unfavorable rainfed upland environments
Resource-poor farmers in India cultivate upland rice as a subsistence crop in poor soil with minimum inputs, often applying little or no fertilizer and controlling weeds by hand. Consequently, upland rice yields are very ...
