Download Heterosis and hybrid rice breeding


Rice is the most important food crop of the developing world and the demand for it is growing. Provided here is a concise account of hybrid breeding in rice, a newly deployed breeding approach to increase the yield. Research on heterosis, male sterility systems, outcrossing mechanisms, disease/insect management, and grain quality considerations in hybrid rice are reviewed. Research on heterosis, male sterility systems, outcrossing mechanisms, disease\/insect management, and grain quality considerations in hybrid rice are reviewed. The book contains a wealth of useful information for practicing hybrid rice breeders, seed producers, researchers, and students of plant breeding.\/span>\"@ en\/a> ; \u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.

Heterosis dominated the thinking of plant and animal geneticists in the s and s as evidenced by the now classic book entitled Heterosis edited by John W. Gowen and published by Iowa State University Press. In fact, the entire U.S. hybrid maize industry and much of the world maize industry is found­ ed on heterosis. Heterosis, when a hybrid shows higher performance for a trait than both parents, offers an important strategy for crop breeding. To examine the genetic basis of heterosis for yield in rice, here we generate, sequence and record the phenotypes of 10, F 2 lines from 17 representative hybrid rice crosses. We classify modern hybrid rice.

This book is a practical guide for students, laymen, or enthusiasts, covering theory, history, terminology and general information. Convenient handbook for reference and self study. Provides an in depth selection of topics and review, written in clear, everyday English for futher clarity. Heterosis and Hybrid Rice Breeding (Monographs on.   Heterosis has been exploited for production of commercial hybrid seed, and rice is the most significant model crop plant where seed production has occurred through multiple types of male sterile lines. Rice being a staple crop throughout the world, cultivation of rice hybrid . Genetic composition of yield heterosis in an elite rice hybrid Gang Zhou, Ying Chen, Wen Yao, Chengjun Zhang, Weibo Xie, Jinping Hua1, Yongzhong Xing, Jinghua Xiao, and Qifa Zhang2 National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement and National Centre of Plant Gene Research (Wuhan), Huazhong Agricultural University.   Hybrid rice shows not only a high-yielding ability but also a wide adaptability. Chinese demonstration has also encouraged IRRI and National rice improvement programs of countries like India, Vietnam, Philippines, USA, Bangladesh and Indonesia to start hybrid rice breeding programs for utilization of heterosis.
