Study of sodicity tolerance at critical sensitive stages in short duration rice genotypes

The present experiment was conducted to screen the already adapted high yielding short duration rice varieties and pre release cultures for two critical sodicity sensitive phases of rice crop, viz., early seedling phase and reproductive stage. It was concluded that the rice genotypes, TRY2, ASD 16, MDU 5, CO 47 , IR 64, TR 2000-3, TR 2003-25 and TR 2004-08 were more suitable for sodic soils.
