  • 21. Ø Notified on 24 Dec 2007 as proceedings of 48th Meeting of Seed Committee, GoI Ø The recurrent parent (RP) should be a notified variety/parental line of a hybrid lacking in specific traits Ø NILs (EDV) should be in conformity with RP for DUS trait but should have one or two phenotypic characters differing from RP to facilitate seed certification and yield at least on par with RP Ø The NILs (EDV) should have a minimum of 85% RPG recovery based on background selection. Ø Identification, notification and release of NILs: The NILs which have successfully completed two years of testing under AVT1-NIL as per the guidelines/criteria mentioned above should be identified, released and notified as a new variety Fast Tracking of MAS derived NIL (by notification under Seed Act 1966) IndianAgriculturalResearchInstitute

  • 31. How was the Challenge Tackled …contd. A. Durable or Horizontal Resistance Breeding •  Exposure of the segregating materials at hot spot locations (Wellington, Dhaulakuan, Dharwad, Indore) at different stages (shuttling) •  Facilitation of screening against yellow/black or yellow/leaf or black rust enabling us to pick up only the disease resistant plants with levels of 10S-30MSS under high disease pressure   IndianAgriculturalResearchInstitute
