Rice occupied highest acreage of > 42 million hectares in India. Tierra’s Rice research has led to some breakthrough trait developments that can radically improve the hybrid rice scenario in the country. Tierra has developed proprietary traits using MNU induced mutations that improves F1 seed productivity thereby increasing incomes of seed producers. Development of mutant lines tolerant to major biotic stresses such as Yellow Stem Borer is one of the key disruptive technology that is under advanced stage of evaluation. Application of Marker Assisted Selection (MAS) to pyramid multiple traits like Blast, Brown Plant Hopper (BPH), Bacterial Leaf Blight (BLB), Gall Midge, Salinity, and submergence tolerance in our program has contributed to superior inbred line development that is leading to new improved research varieties and hybrids
