Plant characters as selection indices for plant elongation in deepwater rice

Haque, M.E. and Dewan, S.B.A. (2000) Plant characters as selection indices for plant elongation in deepwater rice. Bangladesh Journal of Botany, 29 (2). pp. 121-124.

Abstract

Five deepwater rice varieties and their ten hybrids were evaluated in deepwater tanks of Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) under raising water depth. Six characters including plant height were recorded to find out the associations among the characters as well as their contribution towards plant elongation and to identify plant characters as selection indices for plant elongation. Leaf blade length, leaf sheath length, internode length and internode number were found positively correlated with plant height. Leaf sheath length, internode length and internode number directly contributed to elongate plants. So, these characters could be used in breeding programme for plant elongation as well as effective selection.
