Identification and Analysis of Rice Drought Tolerance Using Near Infrared Diffuse Reflection Spectra of Leaves
ABSTRACT In the present study, different drought tolerance rice from different countries and areas were selected and grown in water field and drought field respectively, including 4 traditional varieties of drought rice, 18 varieties of modified drought rice, 2 varieties of drought traits rice, 2 varieties of drought tolerance rice, and a total of 30 different varieties of drought tolerance rice were involved. Using near infrared diffuse reflection spectra of leaves from water field and drought field, we studied the rice drought tolerance identification analysis. Results showed that: using the average spectra of several leaves' spectra, selecting 4,500-7,500 cm(-1) as effective analysis spectra zone, choosing the first derivative and multiple scattering correction (MSC) as spectra preprocessing method, we can set up the calibration models between the spectra of leaves from drought field and the yield of rice. Simultaneously, we concluded that the performance of calibration model for rice yield and drought tolerance identification indexes in the upper booting stage was better than in the previous booting stage whose correlation coefficient of cross validation could reach 0.8. But there was no obvious relation between the spectra from water field and the yield, the drought tolerance identification indexes. We explained the difference in these two series models' performance from the relationship between some parameter of the leaves' biochemistry (chlorophyll, moisture, etc) and yield, the drought tolerance identification indexes.

ABSTRACT: Since the late 1990s, aerobic rice varieties have been released to farmers in the North China Plain to grow rice as a supplementary-irrigated upland crop to cope with water scarcity. Little is known about their yield potential, water use, water productivity (WP), and flood tolerance. In 2001–2002, experiments with aerobic rice varieties HD502 and HD297 and lowland rice variety JD305 were conducted under aerobic and flooded conditions. Under aerobic conditions, five irrigation treatments were implemented. Under flooded conditions, JD305 yielded up to 8.8tha−1, HD502 up to 6.8tha−1, and HD297 up to 5.4tha−1. Under aerobic conditions, the aerobic varieties yielded higher than the lowland variety. HD502 produced 3–3.5tha−1 with 450–500mm total water input and 5.3–5.7tha−1 with 650mm water input and more. HD297 produced 3–3.5tha−1 with 450–500mm total water input and 4.7–5.3tha−1 with 650mm water input and more. The water productivity of aerobic rice under aerobic conditions was higher or on a par with that of the lowland variety under flooded conditions, reaching values of 0.6–0.8ggrainkg−1 water. The relatively high yields of the aerobic varieties under aerobic soil conditions were obtained under “harsh” conditions for growing rice. The soil contained more than 80% sand, was permeable, and held water above field capacity for a few hours after irrigation only. The groundwater table was deeper than 20m, the soil moisture content in the rootzone was mostly between 50 and 80% of saturation, and soil moisture tension went up to 90kPa. We conclude that the aerobic rice varieties HD502 and HD297 are suitable for water-scarce environments, and can stand being periodically flooded.Agricultural Water Management 02/2005; 74(2):107-122.

ABSTRACT: Drought is a multidimensional stress affecting plants at various levels of their organization. The effect of and plant response to drought at the whole plant and crop level is most complex because it reflects the integration of stress effects and responses at all underlying levels of organization over space and time. This review discusses some of the major aspects of crop response to drought stress which are relevant for plant breeding. Emphasis is given to whole plant aspects which are too often disregarded when conclusions are drawn from molecular studies towards the genetic improvement of crop drought resistance. Topics discussed are seedling emergence and establishment, plant phenology, leaf area, water deficit and assimilation, osmotic adjustment, the root and the formation of yield. The discussion is concluded with the interpretation of crop adaptation to drought conditions in its agronomic sense. Conclusions are drawn regarding plant breeding for drought-prone conditions.Plant Growth Regulation 10/1996; 20(2):135-148. DOI:10.1007/BF00024010 · 1.63 Impact Factor
