    Abstract: Phosphorus (P) is a finite resource and is a major limiting factor for rice yield on a large area of World’s arable land. The main objective of this study was to investigate plant and soil P interaction in P limiting conditions. A P deficient 25/75% subsoil/sand mix was determined using pots in a preliminary experiment as to be used for screening 3... Show More

    Abstract: Rice is the one of the oldest crop cereals in Asia and has been grown since ancient times. In the present study, a rice diversity panel was exposed to drought and drought recovery was scored to identify QTLs and candidate genes related to drought resistance. There are no reports of QTL mapping using Genome wide association mapping for drought recov... Show More
