Screening rice for salinity tolerance

Screening rice for salinity tolerance

G.B. Gregorio, D. Senadhira, R.D. Mendoza

Breeding for salinity tolerance in rice requires reliable screening techniques. These techniques must be rapid to keep pace with the large amount of breeding materials generated. Screening under field conditions is difficult due to stress heterogeneity, presence of other soil-related stresses, and the significant influence of environmental factors such as temperature, relative humidity, and solar radiation. These complexities, together with the degree of control of salinity and reproducibility, cause difficulties in developing and using reliable methods of screening voluminous materials.
