Abstract:
One mutant variety Shua-92 and two mutants of rice, derived through mutation breeding from the two standard varieties IR8 and Pokkali, were evaluated for two years for their yield performance in salt affected soils with pH 7.63 to 7.68 and EC 7.11 to 8.0 dSm-1. The mutant variety Shua-92 produced 40 and 49% higher paddy yield on salt affected soils than the famous salt tolerant varieties Nona Bokra and Pokkali.
