Mechanisms of drought tolerance in rice

Code: 9781838792404
Anuj Kumar, Supratim Basu, Venkategowda Ramegowda and Andy Pereira, University of Arkansas, USA

Chapter synopsis: Rice is especially sensitive to drought stress during reproductive growth. Drought mitigation, through development of drought- resistant varieties with higher yields, will be the key factor to improve stable rice production. This chapter reviews the following topics: mechanisms of drought resistance, assessing drought tolerance performance, identifying genes promoting drought tolerance using quantitative trait loci (QLT) analysis, genetic engineering for drought tolerance, drought-protective genes and plant hormones affecting drought tolerance.
