The first of two volumes, this book contains 12 chapters that explicate ways to improve the cultivation of rice at each step in the value chain, from breeding to post-harvest storage, focusing in this volume on physiology and breeding and its application to produce varieties with improved traits like higher yields, as well as nutritional and other aspects of rice quality and how to enhance them. Researchers from North America, Asia, the Philippines, Australia, and Switzerland discuss genetic diversity in rice, advances in molecular breeding techniques, breeding strategies to improve yields, improving photosynthesis, breeding green super rice varieties for sustainable cultivation, mechanisms of drought tolerance in rice, advances in understanding the role of rice in nutrition, its nutraceutical properties, biofortified Golden Rice, the development of rice varieties with improved iron content in grain, quality parameters and testing methods, and agronomic and environmental factors affecting quality.
