Rice Research Programme

CURRENT RESEARCH

  • Productivity enhancement of rice (Basmati and Coarse Varieties) through development of high yielding, stress tolerant hybrids and varieties of rice.
  • Development of inbred lines to be used for hybrid rice development.
  • Develop genetic variability through hybridization.
  • Selection of desirable transgressive segregants from the populations for the development of rice varieties.
  • Screening for biotic and abiotic stresses
  • Hybridization for combining of desired genes
  • Testing of Filial generations supported by DNA finger printing for target genes
  • Combining ability studies
  • Testing of advance lines in micro-plots and NURYT trials
