Screening Upland Rice Genotypes For Grain Yield And Grain Quality In Kenya
Smallholder farmers in Kenya grow local rice cultivars that have low yield potential and poor culinary qualities. Therefore, urban consumers prefer imported rice. The imported rice is expensive and unaffordable to the rural poor. Therefore, improving the yield potential and grain qualities of the local cultivars will increase their consumption and competitiveness in the local market. The objective of this study was to improve the yield potential and grain quality of upland rice cultivars in Kenya. Seven F2.3 families were selected from 16 segregating rice populations and evaluated for two seasons. The physical quality characters determined were grain length grain shape while the chemical andDownloadViews: 110
