INTEGRATED GENETIC AND GENOMIC APPROACHES FOR NEW ITALIAN RICE BREEDING STRATEGIES

Italy is the first European rice producer, with more than 50% of the total paddy production. Increased productivity and quality stability, resistance to present and emerging diseases, resistance to old and new environmental constraints such as cold, drought stress and salty soils are major requirements to provide Italian rice production chain to sustain competitiveness at the international level.

General Objective of the project RISINNOVA is the set up of genetic/genomic approaches to afford actual major needs in the development of an innovative Italian rice producing chain, to provide producers and industry with more competitive varieties suitable for inner as well as international markets.
