Molecular Breeding for Rice Abiotic Stress Tolerance and Nutritional Quality

Molecular Breeding for Rice Abiotic Stress Tolerance and Nutritional Quality by Mohammad Anwar Hossain, Lutful Hassan, Khandakar Md. Ifterkharuddaula, Arvind Kumar, Robert Henry
English | PDF | 2021 | 461 Pages | ISBN : 1119633117 | 7.8 MB

Presents the latest knowledge of improving the stress tolerance, yield, and quality of rice crops
One of the most important cereal crops, rice provides food to more than half of the world population. Various abiotic stresses—currently impacting an estimated 60% of crop yields—are projected to increase in severity and frequency due to climate change. In light of the threat of global food grain insecurity, interest in molecular rice breeding has intensified in recent years. Progress has been made, but there remains an urgent need to develop stress-tolerant, bio-fortified rice varieties that provide consistent and high-quality yields under both stress and non-stress conditions.
Molecular Breeding for Rice Abiotic Stress Tolerance and Nutritional Quality is the first book to provide comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of this critical topic, containing the physiological, biochemical, and molecular information required to develop effective engineering strategies for enhancing rice yield. Authoritative and in-depth chapters examine the molecular and genetic bases of abiotic stress tolerance, discuss yield and quality improvement of rice, and explore new approaches to better utilize natural resources through modern breeding. Topics Include rice adaptation to climate change, enriching rice yields under low phosphorus and light intensity, increasing iron, zinc, vitamin and antioxidant content, and improving tolerance to salinity, drought, heat, cold, submergence, heavy metals and Ultraviolet-B radiation. This important resource:

Contains the latest scientific information on a wide range of topics central to molecular breeding for rice
Provides timely coverage molecular breeding for improving abiotic stress tolerance, bioavailability of essential micronutrients, and crop productivity through biotechnological methods
Features detailed chapters written by internationally-recognized experts in the field
Discusses recent progress and future directions in molecular breeding strategies and research
Molecular Breeding for Rice Abiotic Stress Tolerance and Nutritional Quality is required reading for rice researchers, agriculturists, and agribusiness professionals, and the ideal text for instructors and students in molecular plant breeding, abiotic stress tolerance, environmental science, and plant physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and biotechnology.
