- ... Reduced spikelet fertility appears to be one of the major factors responsible for the decreased rice grain yield when cultivated under semi irrigated aerobic condition. We demonstrate that genotypes with better root systems coupled with higher cellular level tolerance (CLT) can significantly improve spikelet fertility under semi-irrigated aerobic condition in the field. A set of 20 contrasting ric ...

- ... Efficient breeding of drought-tolerant wheat (Triticum spp.) genotypes requires identifying mechanisms underlying exceptional performances. Evidence indicates that the drought-tolerant breeding line RAC875 is water-use conservative, limiting its transpiration rate (TR) sensitivity to increasing vapour pressure deficit (VPD), thereby saving soil water moisture for later use. However, the physiologi ...
