Abiotic stress in rice
Elevated Na+ levels in agricultural lands are increasingly becoming a serious threat to the world agriculture. Plants suffer osmotic and ionic stress under high salinity due to the salts accumulated at the outsid...

Toward understanding transcriptional regulatory networks in abiotic stress responses and tolerance in rice
Abiotic stress causes loss of crop production. Under abiotic stress conditions, expression of many genes is induced, and their products have important roles in stress responses and tolerance. Progress has been...

Rice (Oryza sativa L.), unlike other cereals, can grow well in paddy fields and is highly tolerant of excess water stress, from either submergence (in which part or all of the plant is under water) or waterloggin...

Rice Genotypes with SUB1 QTL Differ in Submergence Tolerance, Elongation Ability during Submergence and Re-generation Growth at Re-emergence
Submergence tolerance is an important trait where short term flash flooding damages rice. Tolerant landraces that withstand submergence for 1–2 weeks were identified. Due to the heterogeneity in flood-prone ec...
