    Abstract: Wild rice is a potential source of many biotic and abiotic stress tolerant genes that could be incorporated to improve cultivated rice. The present rice varieties have narrow genetic base, thus wild rice could serve to extend the genetic base of the cultivated cultivars. To study the inheritance and ancillitary characters of different back cross po... Show More
