Comparative Agrobotanical Characteristics of an Enhanced Rice Cultivar DTPMFe+ and its Parents (AWGU-DWARF-W and IJ86-W) Oryza sativa Linn.

M. Oziegbe and J.O. Faluyi    

Abstract: DTPMFe+ along with its parent AWGU-DWARF-W and IJ86-W were evaluated under a planting spacing of 15X30 cm for morphological and yield contributing parameters. DTPMFe+ showed a selection gain over it parents in plant height (Dwarf), tillering (heavy), maturity date (early), panicle length (long), number of spikelets per panicle (dense), caryopsis size (long and slender), erect plant form, erect flag leaf and leaf below flag leaf, awnlessness, synchronization of booting, all tillers bearing panicles. DPTMFe+ produced a better pattern of protein distribution in the transverse section of the grain than the parents; with fewer protein bodies in the aleurone layer which will preserves its protein during grain milling.
