In recent years, as high-yielding rice cultivars characterized by large panicle, as well as simplified planting techniques such as direct-seeding and seedling broadcasting, are widely applied, the potential risk of lodging is increasing.
The data were recorded for final plant height (cm), productive tillers m-2, grains panicle-1 (g), panicle length (cm), biological yield (t ha-1), 1000 grain weight (g) and paddy yield (t ha-1).
This included panicle length, number of spikelets, and number of panicle branches, total grain weight, panicle weight, second iron toxicity score and panicle per meter square.
Under non-salinity stress, the grain yield, biologic yield, grain per panicle, 1000-grain weight and tiller number was increased by 26, 29.
2] had substantial effects on wild oat seed weight, minor effects also were observed for seeds per panicle.
Eight microsatellite markers, which have shown association with panicle traits in the literature, were selected to identify the microsatellite loci for panicle traits.
First instar nymphs remained motionless close to the eggshells until they molted to 2nd instar when they started to feed and disperse, remaining distributed throughout the rice panicle during their lives.
Across all five genotypes, there was a quadratic decrease in the percentage of tagged panicle spikelet sterility when temperatures increased from 9 to 20[degrees]C, demonstrating that the smallest sterility percentages were obtained at the higher temperatures assessed in the experiment (Figure 2).
Panicles were selected randomly from each plant, and counted the number of fruits on each panicle then average was calculated.
Traits were included plant height (cm, from the ground level to the tip of the primary panicle of selected plants at the time of maturity), number of productive tillers (panicle bearing tillers counted), panicle length (cm, length of the panicle on the main axis measured at the grain maturity stage), number of grains (dry threshed grain per plant used to count by seed counter), thousand grain weight (g, weight of the dry threshed 1000 grain per plant) and single plant yield (g, weight of the dry threshed grain per plant).
The sections cover root and stem feeders, stem borers, rice gall midges, leafhoppers and planthoppers, foliage feeders, panicle feeders, and integrated pest management for rice.
In United States panicle blighting has been sporadic problem in the major rice production area for many years.
