    This study aimed to identify superior genotypes of specialty rice (SR) with comparable or higher grain yield than the drought-tolerant check variety under rainfed and controlled-drought conditions. A total of 17 SR varieties (six aromatic, six pigmented, five glutinous) and a drought-tolerant check variety with ordinary grain quality were evaluated under rainfed lowland and controlled-drought conditions from 2019 to 2021 at Central Luzon State University in the Philippines. Among the SR varieties, aromatic NSIC Rc344, pigmented Black rice, and glutinous NSIC Rc15 had comparable or higher grain yield than the drought-tolerant check variety under both rainfed and controlled-drought conditions. These selected genotypes were classified as the highest yielding, with a more stable yield than the drought-tolerant check variety across the hydrological conditions based on the BLUPs productivity and stability test and drought tolerance indices. The selected SR varieties had a greater panicle number (NSIC Rc344), more grains per panicle (NSIC Rc15), and a higher 1000-grain weight and harvest index (Black rice). In comparison to a higher yield but with a higher market price due to the superior grain quality of the identified SR than the drought-tolerant check variety, the net income in rainfed lowland conditions significantly increased by 69–108%. These results suggest that planting good-performing SR in rainfed lowlands can increase profitability in this ecosystem due to the higher market price compared to ordinary drought-tolerant varieties.

    In Cambodia, rice is predominantly produced in areas with rainfed lowland conditions where photoperiod-sensitive varieties are cultivated. A number of varieties have been released for rainfed lowland areas, and the rice grain yield has reportedly increased by approximately 12% over the past ten years. Moreover, great fluctuations in yield performance have been observed across different soil types of the rainfed ecosystems of Cambodia. Therefore, the present study aimed to analyze the grain yield and stability among ten popular varieties that were released for rainfed lowland ecosystems across the four different soil types in Cambodia in two years. The grain yield varied 566 g m−2 as the highest in clay soil and about 220 g m−2 as the lowest in sandy soil. A combined ANOVA revealed significant differences for the main effect of genotype, environment, and genotype-by-environment interaction (GEI) for all yield-related traits and grain yield per square meter. The principal component test results showed that the heterogeneity of grain yield was mainly attributable to the effect of environment, followed by the effect of genotype. In fertile conditions, a higher percentage of filled grains was supported by higher leaf N until the late stage with a wider flag leaf. In conditions of moderate fertility, larger numbers of panicles were supported by a higher percentage of productive culms with higher leaf N until the late stage. In conditions of poor fertility, a higher percentage of filled grains was supported by higher leaf N until the late stage, which is considered to be important for higher grain yield. The variety Phka Rumduol showed these preferable traits and produced higher yields in fertile to poor natural soil fertility conditions with moderate variation. This variety is considered to be more desirable and ideal due to its stability and higher grain yield. The other varieties, namely, Phka Mealdei, Phka Rumdeng, and CAR4, were identified as above-average yielders. Therefore, those varieties potentially may be recommended for cultivation in rainfed lowland rice ecosystems in Cambodia due to their high yields. CAR4 showed moderate variation at the same level as Phka Rumduol. From the point of stability, Phka Rumduol and CAR4 can be expected to excel.

    In rainfed lowland rice fields characterized by sloping terrains and the presence of a hardpan in a flat topography, plants are often exposed to soil moisture fluctuation (SMF) stress due to erratic rainfall patterns. Root plasticity is one of the key traits that play important roles in plant adaptation under such conditions. In this study, two contrasting genotypes, KDML105 and IRAT109, were examined to quantify the expression of plasticity in root branching at different positions in the toposequence (TP) and in a flat topography with a hardpan, both without a groundwater table, and subjected to SMF. Results showed that KDML105 exhibited improved adaptation to SMF conditions due to its greater root system because of the promoted nodal root production and development of lateral roots in the upper soil layer (0 – 20 cm soil depth) along the TP and above the hardpan in a flat topography, which led to the maintenance of its stomatal conductance and dry matter production. IRAT109, on the other hand, did not express root plasticity in deep-rooting due to the absence of groundwater table, particularly in the upper TP, as well as branching ability above the hardpan in a flat topography, which resulted in less water uptake and reduced dry matter production under SMF. Overall, the results indicated that root plasticity in the upper soil layer could be an important trait for the adaptation of rice, both in a sloping TP without a hardpan or in a flat topography with a hardpan, experiencing SMF.

    Drought is one of the most serious constraints to rice cultivation, even under alternate wetting and drying (AWD), which is a water-saving management practice. In rice, enhanced root development is essential for stable shoot growth, adaptability and productivity under water deficit environments. We identified and characterized outstanding rooting1 (our1) rice mutant using hydroponics. The present study sought to examine morphological root traits of the our1 mutant and the role of the mutation gene in shoot growth and yield under AWD. Thus, we evaluated the growth performance of the our1 rice mutant in pot experiments and under field AWD conditions in Kenya. The experiments were conducted with our1 mutant, its wild type and their progenies under both AWD and continuously waterlogged (CWL) conditions. The our1 mutant possessed a well-developed root system and exhibited particularly enhanced thin root development, which was maintained from the early vegetative stage through the reproductive stage under both pot and field AWD management. This enhanced root development promoted shoot growth through increased water uptake during rewatered conditions between drought periods in AWD. In addition, the our1 mutant showed enhanced shoot growth during the reproductive stage, resulting in the maintenance of yield under AWD fields. Genotypes harbouring our1 mutation gene showed higher yields compared to wild-type genotypes which was attributed to their higher photosynthetic ability as a result of enhanced root activity. These results suggest the important role of a well-developed root system architecture and enhanced root function in stabilizing rice yields under water-limited environments. Our findings indicate that the our1 mutation gene can serve as a novel breeding material to mitigate the impact of transient drought stress on yield under AWD.

    This study aims to compare the grain yield, gross return above fertilizer cost (GRAFC: (paddy sales)–(fertilizer cost)), and several parameters relating to the quality of white rice cultivated with different soil-specific nutrient management in 14 provinces where different soil types are distributed. The grain yield tended to increase with increased fertilizer application; however, the relationship between the fertilization rate and the yield was not linear in areas where clay soil dominates. In cases of popular varieties cultivated from the northern to southern province, the amount of fertilizer applied was up to 163 kg ha−1 (sum of N-P2O5-K2O), and the GRAFC and the fertilization rate showed a nonlinear relationship, with a peak of around 120 kg ha−1 fertilization. The nitrogen concentration recognized as a negative factor for the quality of rice tended to increase with an increasing fertilization rate, and the carbohydrate concentration and carbohydrate/protein ratio that are a positive factor for the quality were related negatively with the fertilizer rate. The amylopectin concentration in white rice was positively related with the carbohydrate concentration, which decreased with an increasing fertilization rate. The levels of fertilizer application required to achieve a higher yield, GRAFC, and the maintenance and improvement of parameters relating to grain quality were different.

    Sago palm (Metroxylon sagu Rottb.) grows in well-drained mineral soil and in peatland with high groundwater levels until complete submersion. However, the published information on nutrient uptake and carbohydrate content in sago palms growing under waterlogging remains un-reported. This experiment observed sago palm growth performance under normal soil conditions (non-submerged conditions) as a control plot and extended waterlogged conditions. Several parameters were analyzed: Plant morphological growth traits, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and sugar concentration in the plant organ, including sucrose, glucose, starch, and non-structural car-bohydrate. The analysis found that sago palm morphological growth traits were not significantly affected by extended waterlogging. However, waterlogging reduced carbohydrate levels in the up-per part of the sago palm, especially the petiole, and increased sugar levels, especially glucose, in roots. Waterlogging also reduced N concentration in roots and leaflets and P in petioles. The K level was independent of waterlogging as the sago palm maintained a sufficient level in all of the plant organs. Long duration waterlogging may reduce the plant’s economic value as the starch level in the trunk decreases, although sago palm can grow while waterlogged.

    The development of a plastic root system is essential for stable crop production under variable environments. Rice plants have two types of lateral roots (LRs): S-type (short and thin) and L-type (long, thick, and capable of further branching). LR types are determined at the primordium stage, with a larger primordium size in L-types than S-types. Despite the importance of LR types for rice adaptability to variable water conditions, molecular mechanisms underlying the primordium size control of LRs are unknown. Here, we show that two WUSCHEL-related homeobox (WOX) genes have opposing roles in controlling LR primordium (LRP) size in rice. Root tip excision on seminal roots induced L-type LR formation with wider primordia formed from an early developmental stage. QHB/OsWOX5 was isolated as a causative gene of a mutant that is defective in S-type LR formation but produces more L-type LRs than wild-type (WT) plants following root tip excision. A transcriptome analysis revealed that OsWOX10 is highly up-regulated in L-type LRPs. OsWOX10 overexpression in LRPs increased the LR diameter in an expression-dependent manner. Conversely, the mutation in OsWOX10 decreased the L-type LR diameter under mild drought conditions. The qhb mutants had higher OsWOX10 expression than WT after root tip excision. A yeast one-hybrid assay revealed that the transcriptional repressive activity of QHB was lost in qhb mutants. An electrophoresis mobility shift assay revealed that OsWOX10 is a potential target of QHB. These data suggest that QHB represses LR diameter increase, repressing OsWOX10. Our findings could help improve root system plasticity under variable environments.

    <p>The export of Cambodian milled rice to the international market has been increasing in volume remarkably. Consumer demands for rice in terms of cooking and eating quality are different from country to county. To contribute to the promotion of Cambodian rice exports, evidence-based information about rice quality is very important. This study aims to compare the quality of eight rice samples including six different indica lowland rice varieties from different producers/suppliers in Cambodia. Some sensing equipment analyzers such as a grain scanner (image-processing device), a rice taste analyzer for white rice, and a taste analyzer unit for cooked rice that measures freshness, hardness, and stickiness using a near-infrared transmission sensor were employed with conventional chemical analyses. The percentage of head rice as analyzed by the grain scanner was over 70% in all samples, and they were evaluated as being a higher grade according to the Cambodian standard (≧ 60%). Although the analyzers were developed originally for temperate japonica, short-grain rice varieties, the taste mark detected by the analyzer for white rice showed a negative relationship with the protein and amylose content in white rice. The taste value detected by the analyzer unit for cooked rice showed a highly negative relationship with the nitrogen concentration in white rice and a highly positive relationship with the carbon/nitrogen concentration ratio—the C/N ratio—in white rice and the stickiness/hardness ratio in cooked rice.</p>

    Communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in plant roots improve host plant growth. In this study, AMF communities in the roots of the sago palm (Metroxylon sagu Rottb.) were investigated in mineral soil (MS) and shallow peat soil (SPS) in Sarawak, Malaysia. MS exhibited lower moisture content (MS, 38.1; SPS, 79.8%), higher pH (H2 O) (MS, 4.6; SPS, 4.1), higher soil bulk density (MS, 1.03; SPS, 0.20 g cm−3 ), and higher nitrogen content (MS, 16.9; SPS, 2.7 kg m−3 ) than SPS at the same soil depth, while the phosphorus (P) content (Bray II) (MS, 1.6; SPS, 1.9 g P2 O5 m−3 ) was similar. The AMF colonization rate was significantly lower in SPS (39.2 ± 12.5%) than in MS (73.2 ± 4.6%). The higher number of AMF operational taxonomic units (OTUs) was detected by amplicon sequencing of the partial small-subunit rRNA gene (MS, 78; SPS, 50). A neighbor-joining tree of obtained OTUs revealed that they belonged to Acaulosporaceae, Ambisporaceae, Claroideoglomeraceae, Gigasporaceae, and Glomeraceae. The lower abundance and diversity of AMF in SPS are possibly caused by abiotic factors, including soil physicochemical properties. Glomus and Acaulospora species detected in SPS might have strong tolerance against acidity and high soil moisture content.

    A well-developed root system is essential for efficient water uptake, particularly in drought-prone environments. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the promotion of root development are poorly understood. We identified and characterized a rice mutant, outstanding rooting1 (our1), which exhibited a well-developed root system. The our1 mutant displayed typical auxin-related phenotypes, including elongated seminal root and defective gravitropism. Seminal root elongation in the our1 mutant was accelerated via the promotion of cell division and elongation. In addition, compared with the wild type, the density of short and thin lateral roots (S-type LRs) was reduced in the our1 mutant, whereas that of long and thick LRs (L-type LRs) was increased. Expression of OUR1, which encodes OsbZIP1, a member of the basic leucine zipper transcription factor family, was observed in the seminal root tip and sites of LR emergence, wherein attenuation of reporter gene expression levels controlled by the auxin response promoter DR5 was also observed in the our1 mutant. Taken together, our results indicate that the our1 gene promotes root development by suppressing auxin signaling, which may be a key factor contributing to an improvement in root architecture.

    <p>Water stress such as drought and waterlogging is considered to be a major limiting factor in crop production. Roots play important roles in crop adaptation to water stress. This study aimed to characterize the vertical root distribution patterns and analyze the root-shoot relationships of different cereal species with different water requirements in response to different soil moisture conditions. Sorghum, maize, and rice were grown under 5% w/w soil moisture content (SMC5), 20% w/w soil moisture content (SMC20) and in waterlogged soil (WL) for 35 days using root box pin-board method. For sorghum and maize, the optimal soil water condition was SMC20 which produced the greatest shoot and root growth, while rice had greatest shoot and root growth under WL. Sorghum significantly increased root to shoot ratio in both water stress conditions, suggesting that sorghum prioritizes carbon partitioning of assimilates towards the roots. Although whole root dry weight and total root length were reduced by water stress, vertical distribution of root traits varied with soil water conditions and promoted root response was observed in specific soil layer. A highly positive relationship between root and shoot traits was observed in rice, suggesting that root and shoot trait responses are coupled with changing soil water conditions. Further studies are needed to confirm root architectural changes focusing on different root component traits as well as other root traits related to root architectural structure.</p>

    Rainfed lowland (RFL) fields generally experience soil moisture fluctuations (SMF) and have a hardpan layer that impedes deep rooting during episodes of drought. The development of root systems in response to SMF and the ability of roots to elongate through the hardpan when it becomes relatively soft during re-watering are key rice traits to efficiently extract water at the deep soil during subsequent periods of drought. Thus, this study aimed to identify their chromosome segment substitution lines (CSSLs) from Sasanishiki and Habataki crosses, which have root plasticity exhibited in response to SMF, which enables plants to penetrate the hardpan and develop deep root systems. Root plasticity was evaluated by comparing root traits between each of the 39 CSSLs and their recurrent parent, Sasanishiki, under water-stressed and well-watered (WW control) conditions in hydroponics and soil-filled pots. Among the 39 CSSLs, three (SL34, SL35 and SL39) had similar growth as Sasanishiki under WW, but were able to produce greater shoot dry weight than their recurrent parent under transient soil moisture stress in hydroponics and soil culture. Under SMF, in the rootbox-pinboard and rootbox-hardpan systems, only SL39 showed a significantly greater root system development than Sasanishiki. SL39 also had a more enhanced root aerenchyma formation than Sasanishiki in the shallow layer during drought-rewatered conditions under SMF, possibly facilitating atmospheric O2 diffusion to the root tips. As a consequence, SL39 promoted nodal root elongation through the hardpan during rewatering and subsequent greater deep root system development to access more water from the deep soil during the drought period of SMF, relative to Sasanishiki. The results implied that SL39 can be a good genetic material to study the QTLs associated with plasticity in root hardpan penetration and deep root system development in rice.

    Background and Aims: The ability for salt removal at the leaf sheath level is considered to be one of the major mechanisms associated with salt tolerance in rice. Thus, understanding the genetic control of the salt removal capacity in leaf sheaths will help improve the molecular breeding of salt-tolerant rice varieties and speed up future varietal development to increase productivity in salt-affected areas. We report a genome-wide association study (GWAS) conducted to find single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with salt removal in leaf sheaths of rice. Methods: In this study, 296 accessions of a rice (Oryza sativa) diversity panel were used to identify salt removal-related traits and conduct GWAS using 36 901 SNPs. The sheath:blade ratio of Na+ and Cl- concentrations was used to determine the salt removal ability in leaf sheaths. Candidate genes were further narrowed via Gene Ontology and RNA-seq analysis to those whose putative function was likely to be associated with salt transport and were up-regulated in response to salt stress. Key results: For the association signals of the Na+ sheath:blade ratio, significant SNPs were found only in the indica sub-population on chromosome 5. Within candidate genes found in the GWAS study, five genes were upregulated and eight genes were downregulated in the internal leaf sheath tissues in the presence of salt stress. Conclusions: These GWAS data imply that rice accessions in the indica variety group are the main source of genes and alleles associated with Na+ removal in leaf sheaths of rice under salt stress.

    Lateral roots (LRs) determine the overall root system architecture, thus enabling plants to efficiently explore their underground environment for water and nutrients. However, the mechanisms regulating LR development are poorly understood in monocotyledonous plants. We characterized a rice mutant, wavy root elongation growth 1 (weg1), that produced higher number of long and thick LRs (L-type LRs) formed from the curvatures of its wavy parental roots caused by asymmetric cell growth in the elongation zone. Consistent with this phenotype, was the expression of the WEG1 gene, which encodes a putative member of the hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein family that regulates cell wall extensibility, in the root elongation zone. The asymmetric elongation growth in roots is well known to be regulated by auxin, but we found that the distribution of auxin at the apical region of the mutant and the wild-type roots was symmetric suggesting that the wavy root phenotype in rice is independent of auxin. However, the accumulation of auxin at the convex side of the curvatures, the site of L-type LR formation, suggested that auxin likely induced the formation of L-type LRs. This was supported by the need of a high amount of exogenous auxin to induce the formation of L-type LRs. These results suggest that the MNU-induced weg1 mutated gene regulates the auxin-independent parental root elongation that controls the number of likely auxin-induced L-type LRs, thus reflecting its importance in improving rice root architecture.

    The rice root system consists of three types of roots; main root, L-type and S-type lateral root (LR). These component roots are morphologically and histologically different, which is termed as heterorhizy. Root system hydraulic architecture is related to the unique features of component roots. We hypothesized that each component root contributes in different degrees to water uptake of the whole root system. Rice varieties IRAT 109 and Taichung 65 were grown in pots filled with soil under continuous waterlogged (CWL) and drought (CD) conditions until two weeks after heading. Morphology and histological structures of roots, which may regulate radial water movement, were compared among the three component roots. Moreover, hydraulic conductivity (Lpr) of the root system, which represents the water uptake ability, were measured with a pressure chamber. Based on a model that Lpr of the whole root system is a product of Lpr of each of the component roots and their surface areas, we found that the differences in Lpr between the two varieties and the plants grown under different soil water conditions for any of the component roots did not support the corresponding differences in the measured Lpr of the whole root system. In contrast, a significant and positive correlation was found between Lpr of the whole root system and the percentage of surface area of S-type LR but not for the other component roots. These results indicate S-type LR might have a higher contribution to Lpr of the whole root system than the other component roots.

    Soil moisture fluctuations (SMF) from wet to dry and vice-versa are common under field conditions, which influence root growth and functions and thus dry matter production and yield. In such condition, phenotypic plasticity in L-type lateral root (LLR) development is an adaptive mechanism of rice and the associated quantitative trait locus (QTL) was previously detected in chromosome 12, mainly contributed by the ‘Kasalath’ allele in Nipponbare x Kasalath chromosome segment substitution lines (CSSLs). In this study, we used +qLLRN-12 genotype of Nipponbare background to validate the functions for LR plasticity under SMF and progressive drought. Plants were subjected to well-watered, fluctuating soil moisture and progressive drought conditions for 38 d. There were no significant genotypic differences in shoot growth and root development under well-watered condition. On the other hand, +qLLRN-12 genotype showed greater shoot dry weight by 31% than Nipponbare, which was associated with larger root system of the former than the latter genotype under fluctuating soil moistures. The greater root system development of +qLLRN-12 genotype was attributed to the greater L-type LR development by 95% relative to Nipponbare. However, under progressive drought condition, +qLLRN-12 genotype had reduced shoot dry weight (SDW) due to its smaller root system relative to its fluctuating soil moisture and well-watered counterparts. These results indicate that the introgressed segment of Kasalath on the chromosome 12 region of Nipponbare was responsible for the plasticity in L-type LR, which contributed to greater root system development, increased water uptake and consequently increased dry matter production under fluctuating soil moisture conditions. The findings also suggest that the expression of this allele is unique and triggered only under fluctuating moisture stress conditions.

    Salt sensitivity in rice plants is associated with the accumulated amount of Na+ and Cl- in shoots and, more significantly, in photosynthetic tissues. Therefore, salt removal ability at the leaf sheath level is an important mechanism of salt tolerance. In the present study we attempted to determine whether rice leaf sheaths excluded Cl- as well as Na+, and to identify the tissues that were involved in the removal ability of both ions. In two rice genotypes, salt-tolerant FL478 and -sensitive IR29, leaf sheaths excluded Na+ and Cl- under NaCl treatment as estimated using their sheath: blade ratios. The sheath: blade ratio of Na+ but not of Cl-, was increased by NaCl treatment. Under NaCl treatment, Na+ concentration was higher in the basal leaf sheath, whereas Cl- concentration was higher in the middle and tip parts. At the tissue level, fundamental parenchyma cells of leaf sheaths retained the highest amounts of Na and Cl when treated with high amount of NaCl. These results imply that the leaf sheath potentially functions to remove excess Na+ and Cl- from xylem vessels in different locations along the axis, with the fundamental parenchyma cells of leaf sheaths being involved in over-accumulation of both Na+ and Cl-.

    BACKGROUND: A significant mechanism of salt-tolerance in rice is the ability to remove Na+ and Cl- in the leaf sheath, which limits the entry of these toxic ions into the leaf blade. The leaf sheath removes Na+ mainly in the basal parts, and Cl- mainly in the apical parts. These ions are unloaded from the xylem vessels in the peripheral part and sequestered into the fundamental parenchyma cells at the central part of the leaf sheath. RESULTS: This study aimed to identify associated Na+ and Cl- transporter genes with this salt removal ability in the leaf sheath of rice variety FL 478. From 21 known candidate Na+ and Cl- transporter rice genes, we determined the salt responsiveness of the expression of these genes in the basal and apical parts, where Na+ or Cl- ions were highly accumulated under salinity. We also compared the expression levels of these transporter genes between the peripheral and central parts of leaf sheaths. The expression of 8 Na+ transporter genes and 3 Cl- transporter genes was up-regulated in the basal and apical parts of leaf sheaths under salinity. Within these genes, OsHKT1;5 and OsSLAH1 were expressed highly in the peripheral part, indicating the involvement of these genes in Na+ and Cl- unloading from xylem vessels. OsNHX2, OsNHX3, OsNPF2.4 were expressed highly in the central part, which suggests that these genes may function in sequestration of Na+ and Cl- in fundamental parenchyma cells in the central part of leaf sheaths under salinity. Furthermore, high expression levels of 4 candidate genes under salinity were associated with the genotypic variation of salt removal ability in the leaf sheath. CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that the salt removal ability in rice leaf sheath may be regulated by expressing various Na+ or Cl- transporter genes tissue-specifically in peripheral and central parts. Moreover, some genes were identified as candidates whose expression levels were associated with the genotypic variation of salt removal ability in the leaf sheath. These findings will enhance the understanding of the molecular mechanism of salt removal ability in rice leaf sheath, which is useful for breeding salt-tolerant rice varieties.

    Drought cycling and soil re-watering trends due to intermittent rainfall patterns are key stress factors that influence rice growth and yield under upland cultivation conditions. However, upland rice adaptation responses to fluctuating soil moisture conditions remain poorly understood. This study investigated root and shoot responses of upland New Rice for Africa (NERICA) varieties to episodic drought and re-watering during growth. We examined root and shoot growth of NERICA 1 and NERICA 4 compared with those of IR72, an improved lowland variety, and Dular, a traditional drought-tolerant variety, in terms of soil moisture fluctuations with different levels of nitrogen fertilization under field conditions that impeded deep root development. During soil moisture fluctuation, all varieties reduced shoot dry weight compared with well-watered plants, regardless of nitrogen fertilization levels. However, total root length for the three upland varieties was enhanced by soil moisture fluctuations at moderate and high nitrogen fertilization, while that of the lowland variety was reduced. Comparing root development during water fluctuations revealed that NERICA 1 had a greater root system than NERICA 4, which was attributed to lateral root development. Furthermore, we found that NERICA varieties increase lateral root mass during soil desiccation under adequate nitrogen fertilization, while Dular and IR72 reduced their root growth rate during drought and increased it after re-watering. Both root growth patterns developed, from around maximum tillering to heading. The analysis of regression between root elongation and shoot growth with fluctuating soil moisture indicated that an enhanced root system during drought, on adequate nitrogen fertilization, can contribute to shoot growth when sufficient water becomes available, specifically around the maximum tillering to the heading growth stage of rice.

    The ability to tolerate salt differs with the growth stages of rice and thus the yield components that are determined during various growth stages, are differentially affected by salt stress. In this study, we utilized chromosome segment substitution lines (CSSLs) from Nona Bokra, a salt-tolerant indica landrace, with the genetic background of Koshihikari, a salt-susceptible japonica variety. These were screened to find superior CSSLs under long-term saline conditions that showed higher grain yield and yield components in comparison to Koshihikari. One-month-old seedlings were transplanted into a paddy field without salinity. These were allowed to establish for 1 month further, then the field was flooded, with saline water maintained at 7.41 dS m-1 salinity until harvest. The experiments were performed twice, once in 2015 and a targeted study in 2016. Salt tolerance of growth and reproductive stage parameters was evaluated as the Salt Effect Index (SEI) which was computed as the difference in each parameter within each line between control and saline conditions. All CSSLs and Koshihikari showed a decrease in grain yield and yield components except panicle number under salinity. SL538 showed a higher SEI for grain yield compared with Koshihikari under salinity throughout the two experiments. This was attributed to the retained grain filling and harvest index, yet the mechanism was not due to maintaining Na+, Cl- and K+ homeostasis. Few other CSSLs showed greater SEI for grain weight under salinity compared with Koshihikari, which might be related to low concentration of Na+ in leaves and panicles. These data indicate that substitution of different Nona Bokra chromosome segments independently contributed to the maintenance of grain filling and grain weight of Koshihikari under saline conditions.

    This study evaluated the effect of three N fertilization levels 60 (low), 120 (medium), and 180 (high) kg N ha(-1) and soil moisture content gradients created by a line-source sprinkler on the expression of plasticity in lateral root branching and dry matter production (DMP) of upland new rice for Africa (NERICA) 1 and 4. There were no significant differences in DMP between NERICA 1 and 4 under well-watered, mild drought, and severe drought conditions regardless of N level. In contrast, under moderate drought (12-21% v/v of soil moisture content [SMC] in 2011 and 16-24% v/v of SMC in 2012), NERICA 1 had significantly higher shoot dry weight, total root length (TRL), lateral root length, and branching index than NERICA 4 at medium and high N; however, there was no significant difference between the two NERICAs in DMP at low N. TRL of NERICA 1 was significantly higher under moderate drought than well-watered conditions, but only with medium and high N. Regardless of N level, moderate drought did not enhance NERICA 4's root system. Thus, NERICA 1's root system exhibited plastic development, promoting lateral root branching at medium and high N. These morphological changes were associated with the greater DMP in NERICA 1 than NERICA 4 under moderate drought, whereas the lack of such plasticity at low N meant genotypic differences in DMP were obscured. Our findings implied that N application can improve upland NERICA productivity under moderate drought conditions, but differences in variety and field conditions may influence efficacy.

    Roots play a number of important roles in crop adaptation to various abiotic stresses such as water stress. However, traits responsible for such adaptation may differ with environments. This paper reviews recent progress in our research on the functional roles of important root traits. We have been paying special attention to drought as well as to soil moisture fluctuations as prevailing water stresses, and the ability of the plant to change its development as environmental conditions change, which is known as phenotypic plasticity. We have been using various rice accessions/mapping populations such as the OryzaSNP panel, chromosome segment substitution lines (CSSL) derived from a Nipponbare and Kasalath cross, and IR64 introgression lines. The results consistently showed that, in addition to deep roots, the plasticity of root system development is a key trait for plant adaptation to water stress. We found that plasticity in the development of the entire root system as a function of the plasticity in lateral root development is important under progressive drought, while plasticity in lateral root development that is associated with aerenchyma formation is important under transient drought-to-waterlogged conditions. We quantitatively showed the contributions of root plasticity to dry matter production and yield through enhanced water uptake under such water stress. We also identified quantitative trait loci (QTLs) that are responsible for root plasticity. The importance of explicitly characterizing the nature of the stresses in the target areas is discussed in relation with designing an ideal root system, which is a primary requirement to define an actual breeding target for improving productivity in abiotic stress-prone soil environments.

    Rainfed lowland (RFL) rice fields have hardpans and experience soil moisture fluctuations (SMF) stress, which influence root system development. Here, we clarify the expression and timing of the plasticity in nodal root elongation through the hardpan under SMF and its contribution to shoot growth using a shallow-rooting IR64 and its deep-rooting introgression line, YTH304. Under SMF, soil moisture content had negative relationship with soil penetration resistance, regardless of hardpan bulk densities. YTH304 had greater root system below the hardpan than IR64 in hardpan with 1.50 but not in 1.70 g cm-3 bulk density (BD). YTH304 had greater plasticity in nodal root elongation through the hardpan than IR64 under SMF, which was clearly expressed during rewatering. YTH304 also had greater soil water uptake below the hardpan during drought and greater shoot growth than IR64. The results imply that deep root system development during SMF was due to the plasticity in nodal root elongation through the hardpan expressed during rewatering rather than during drought periods. This is against the long standing belief that active root elongation through the hardpan happens during drought. This also implies a need to revisit current root screening methods to identify rice lines with good hardpan penetration ability.

    Rainfed lowland rice fields are characterized by soil moisture fluctuations (SMF) and the presence of hardpan that impedes deep rooting and thus limits water extraction from deep soil layer during the periods of drought. In this study, we used rootboxes with three layers
    shallow layer, artificial hardpan, and deep and wet layer below the hardpan, to evaluate differences in the plasticity of nodal roots elongation through the hardpan and promote root branching below the hardpan in response to SMF among four rice varieties
    Sasanishiki, Habataki, Nipponbare, and Kasalath. Experiments were conducted during the summer and autumn seasons. Plasticity was computed as the difference in root traits within each variety between the SMF and continuously well-watered treatments. In both experiments, Habataki consistently tended to exhibit higher root plasticity than the other three varieties by increasing number of nodal roots that penetrated the hardpan during rewatering period in SMF, when the soil moisture increased and penetration resistance decreased. This root plasticity then contributed to greater water use at the deeper soil during the subsequent drought period and overall shoot dry matter production. Habataki had significantly higher δ13C value in roots at deep layer than roots at the shallow and hardpan layers under SMF, which may indicate that these were relatively newly grown roots as a consequence of root plasticity. This study also indicates that CSSLs derived from Sasanishiki and Habataki varieties may be suitable for the analysis of QTLs associated with root plasticity expression in rainfed lowland with hardpan and experiencing SMF.

    In rainfed lowland rice ecosystem, rice plants are often exposed to alternating recurrences of waterlogging and drought due to erratic rainfall. Such soil moisture fluctuation (SMF) which is completely different from simple or progressive drought could be stressful for plant growth, thereby causing reduction in yield. Root plasticity is one of the key traits that play important roles for plant adaptation under such conditions. This study aimed to evaluate root plasticity expression and its functional roles in dry matter production and yield under SMF using Nipponbare, KDML 105 and three backcross inbred lines (BILs) and to identify QTL(s) associated with root traits in response to SMF at two growth stages using Nipponbare/KDML105 F2 plants. A BIL, G3-3 showed higher shoot dry matter production and yield than Nipponbare due to its greater ability to maintain stomatal conductance concomitant with greater root system development caused by promoted production of nodal and lateral roots under SMF. QTLs were identified for total nodal root length, total lateral root length, total root length, number of nodal roots, and branching index under SMF at vegetative and reproductive stages. The QTLs detected at vegetative and reproductive stages were different. We discuss here that relationship between root system of G3-3 and the detected QTLs. Therefore, G3-3 and the identified QTLs could be useful genetic materials in breeding program for improving the adaptation of rice plants in target rainfed lowland areas.

To quantify phenotypic plasticity to its full extent in potential, it needs to be evaluated under contiguous environmental changes. For that purpose, we used the combination of chromosome segment substitution lines (Nipponbare/Kasalath CSSLs) and line source sprinkler (LSS) system of irrigation. For analysis, we first attempted to apply the coefficient of variation (CV) and norm of reaction that have been used as the conventional approaches, and then propose a new approach for quantification of root plasticity. Results revealed that CV was not linked to root plasticity under contiguous water gradient in this study. In contrast, norm of reaction was linked to root plasticity and better explained with curve than linear, especially for CSSL50 (the most plastic genotypes) under such gradient. Based on the norm of reaction with curve, root plasticity was calculated using the difference in total root length between CSSLs and the recurrent parent, Nipponbare. Further analysis of root plasticity in relation to dry matter production was also done. By applying the new approach, we confirmed that root plasticity expression was affected by the intensities of drought stress and genotypes, indicating that such root plasticity is genetically controlled. In addition, root plasticity effectively contributed to the dry matter production under the drought conditions and maximized at around 20% of soil moisture content (–0.04 MPa). By using CSSLs and LSS system, we successfully evaluated root plasticity under contiguous water gradient.
