Objectives

  1. a) Development of a Sri Lankan traditional rice core collection using available gene bank data and phenotypic characters. b) Determination of variation in flowering time and attributed traits of the Sri Lankan traditional rice core collection under common field conditions. c) Assessment of flowering time related phenotypic traits of selected germplasm of rice for photoperiod sensitivity. Screening of selected rice varieties for known flowering time genes. d) Evaluation of heterosis of flowering time through crosses between Sri Lankan traditional rice and a common parent.
