In order to identify the degree of salinity tolerance of the indica and japonica rice groups, 10 varieties were tested under saline and non-saline conditions. Twelve-day-old seedlings were grown in normal culture solution, then initially salinized at an electrical conductivity (EC) of 6 dS/m for 4 days, and finally salinized at an EC of 12 dS/m for the next 14 days. The growth parameters, and Na and K absorption in the shoot were measured to characterize the tolerance level of the two rice groups. Reduction in all growth parameters of tolerant varieties was significantly lower in indica varieties than in japonica varieties. Tolerant indica varieties were good Na excluders, absorbed high amounts of K, and maintained a low Na/K ratio in the shoot. Tolerant japonica varieties also absorbed less Na but were not as good excluders as indica varieties. Shoot K concentration alone did not show any relationship to salinity tolerance. These results indicate that, for all parameters measured, the tolerance level of indica was higher than that of japonica.

The genetics of salinity tolerance in rice was investigated by a nine-parent complete diallel including reciprocals. Test materials involved susceptible (IR28, IR29, and MI-48), moderately tolerant (IR4595-4-1-13, IR9884-54-3-1E-P1, and IR10206-29-2-1), and tolerant (“Nona Bokra”, “Pokkali”, and SR26B) parents. Twoweek-old seedlings were grown in a salinized (EC = 12 dS/m) culture solution for 19 days under controlled conditions in the IRRI phytotron. Typical characteristics of salinity toleranc...

Wide compatible varieties (WCVs) show normal spikelet fertility in crosses with Indica and Japonica rice varieties. Crosses of Indica and Japonica varieties frequently show high spikelet sterility which prevents exploitation of heterosis for grain yield. We screened 41 rice varieties for the wide compatibility trait by crossing each with three Indica and three Japonica testers. Varieties giving fertile F1 hybrids with both groups of testers were classified as WCVs. Seven varieties viz., BPI-76 (...

The salt tolerance of several Australian and overseas rice varieties was studied at germination, early vegetative growth, and reproductive development in a temperature controlled glasshouse to determine the reliability of screening at any particular stage. At all 3 stages, varieties differed in their degree of tolerance, but the order of tolerance varied considerably between stages. Of the varieties used, the Australian long grain variety Pelde was tolerant for germination but most intolerant du...

Rice Varieties : Bluebonnet, IR 8, Jhona 349 and Magnolia responded quite differently to salinization. Each character showed a differential reaction to salinity. Three types of sterility i.e. cluster, delayed, and random caused by salinization could be classified. Regarding panicle weight and seed setting percentage, which are important from the agronomic standpoint, Jhona 349 was relatively the most resistant, while Magnolia the least.

Soil salinity is a critical problem for rice production and is also often associated with phosphors (P) deficiency. Plant hormones, like brassinosteroids, were shown to play a role in plant responses to different stresses and are also expected to mitigate salt stress. The aim of this study was to compare shoot growth and root architecture traits of two rice cultivars (INCA LP-5 and Perla de Cuba) during early plant development in response to salt, P limitation and a brassinosteroid. Seeds were p...

Rice tolerance to salinity stress involves diverse and complementary mechanisms, such as the regulation of genome expression, activation of specific ion-transport systems to manage excess sodium at the cell or plant level, and anatomical changes that avoid sodium penetration into the inner tissues of the plant. These complementary mechanisms can act synergistically to improve salinity tolerance in the plant, which is then interesting in breeding programs to pyramidize complementary QTLs (quantit...

Rice germplasm is a rich resource for discovering genes associated with salt tolerance. In the current study, a set of 96 accessions were evaluated for seedling stage salinity tolerance and its component traits. Significant phenotypic variation was observed among the genotypes for all the measured traits and eleven accessions with high level of salt tolerance at seedling stage were identified. The germplasm set comprised of three sub-populations and genome-wide association study (GWAS) identifie...
The growth of 11 floating rice lines had already been a selection when affected by salinity stress. The method demonstrates that the amount of NaCl (0, 1, 3, 5 g/l) was irrigated into lines in a plastic round box after seeds were been nurseries on 2 days, where the growth of lines was affected by salt stress during seedling growth and germination. The study illustrated that the stress caused by salinity causes a decrease in all currents development as the salinity level increases between the gro...

Soil salinization and a degraded ecological environment are challenging agricultural productivity and food security. Rice (Oryza sativa), the staple food of much of the world's population, is categorized as a salt-susceptible crop. Improving the salt tolerance of rice would increase the potential of saline-alkali land and ensure food security. Salt tolerance is a complex quantitative trait. Biotechnological efforts to improve the salt tolerance of rice hinge on a detailed understanding of the mo...

Rice, one of the most important staple food crops in the world, is highly sensitive to soil salinity at the seedling stage. The ultimate yield of this crop is a function of the number of seedlings surviving after transplantation in saline water. Oryza sativa cv. IR64 is a high-yielding salinity-sensitive variety, while Pokkali is a landrace traditionally cultivated by the local farmers in the coastal regions in India. However, the machinery responsible for the seedling-stage tolerance in Pokkali...

Salinity stress affects global food producing areas by limiting both crop growth and yield. Attempts to develop salinity-tolerant rice varieties have had limited success due to the complexity of the salinity tolerance trait, high variation in the stress response and a lack of available donors for candidate genes for cultivated rice. As a result, finding suitable donors of genes and traits for salinity tolerance has become a major bottleneck in breeding for salinity tolerant crops. Twenty-two wil...

Harnessing the potential of sodic soils in the Indo-Gangetic plains necessitates the development of salt-tolerant varieties and matching management practices as the management practices required for rice production in salt-affected soils are entirely different from those in normal soils.
