Impact of Reduced Culm Length on Yieldand Yield Parameters in Rice

Abstract:
Three short statured rice mutants (B-370-32, J-77-30 and SS-6) were developed through mutation breeding from three aromatic, fine grained, but tall and low yielding local varieties (Basmati-370, Jajai-77 and Sonahri Sugdasi, respectively). The mutants exhibited superiority in grain yield and quality over their parents. The number of panicles per hill, grain weight per hill and fertile grains per panicle made significant contribution to grain yield per unit area. Among the mutants, the grain yield of J-77-30 was significantly higher as compared to its parent/check varieties.
