  • Project stage: Closed

  • Project start date: Monday, September 5, 2011

  • Project completion date: Thursday, March 1, 2012

  • National Priority: RIC-Strengthened industry capacity


The Australian Rice Industry stands to benefit from the collaboration and linkage formed as being part of these research projects. Australias involvement in the Cold tolerance and Blast research projects will allow us to be at the forefront of world leading research on these 2 important topics.

The meeting of the Temperate Rice Research Consortium (TRCC) reports on the outcome of the last 12 months research on the four projects;

WG 1: Yield potential and grain quality
WG 2: Biotic stress (blast resistance)
WG 3: Abiotic stress (cold tolerance)
WG 4: Resource-use efficiency

The four projects are all related to current RIRDC Projects. The WG1 project relates to the new Collaborative Rice Breeding/Quality project, the WG2 project to Crop Protection and Biosecurity, the WG3 project relates to Rice cold tolerance for yield stability and water-use efficiency 2; and WG4 relates to Approaches to Manage Spatial Variability of Rice Growth and Yield.
