Abstract

Study on resistance of a new indica hybrid rice, Xieyou 963.

Abstract

The resistance of Xieyou 963 to rice blast (Magnaporthe grisea), bacterial blight (Xanthomonas oryzae), rice black streaked dwarf virus and brown planthopper (Nilaparvata lugens) was evaluated. Xieyou 963 had high resistance to rice blast, medium resistance to rice black-streaked dwarf disease and resistance to brown planthopper in the adult stage of rice plants. Xieyou 963 can be used for breeding for improved disease resistance.
