Abstract

A laboratory experiment was conducted during 2002 to screen cultivars suited to direct anaerobic seeding i.e. germinated seeds sown beneath the surface of flooded soil. Rice cultivars ASD19, C043 and ADT38 were superior in seedling establishment, and recorded higher root length, shoot length, dry matter production and vigour index, followed by ADT39 and CO45.
