Northern rice varieties
« on: 2020-02-06, 07:56:27 AM »
The EFN has a project to assess northern rice varieties, based on the varieties Loto and M-101
https://www.experimentalfarmnetwork.org/project/11

This graph from USDA shows that there is quite a lot of rice produced in northern China, at about the latitude of Germany/southern Canada. No idea about the varieties, but it may be interesting to check out what genotypes they have there... and combine them to breed something even better.

When I asked the USDA grin people about some Mongolian accessions they said no, northern Japanese varieties are the shortest season.

Consider variety Gum Nisiki PI 162206 it did the best for me

Sherck seeds has a nice selection

I ordered one or two of his earliest, but haven't managed to plant yet.

Sherck says that's 115 days from transplant for him. That's not too quick.

Annapolisseeds has one too. It is called Duborskian Rice. Suitable for Nova Scotia.

Status report for garden rice as of October 10
If I say it lived I dug the best plant and it's still alive under a grow light in my basement.

Lived = grew did not flower

Boot = flower in the stalk

Emerged = flower stalk produced

Arpaguli PI 189462 lived

SuBio PI 162297 lived

KuJungDo PI 162242 lived

HukZoDou PI 162229 empty row

Linea 45282185 lived

Santohezskij52 PI 439722 lived in boot

Konsuito PI 154453 lived, partially emerged inflorescence

Kzulshali PI 282184 lived, partially emerged

Chernyj PI 584617 lived, boot

Uz Rosz 2832 PI 282212 lived, partially emerged

Szantacheszkj 52 PI 291447 lived barely partially emerged inflorescence

Hokkai 213 PI 652769 lived partially emerged inflorescence

Hokken 22 PI 652759 lived partially emerged inflorescence

Omitted 39 PI 282190 lived in boot

Gum Nisiki PI 162206 lived Fully Emerged inflorescence earliest inflorescence to emerge. This variety is the standout so far. No seed produced yet though!

Yukihikari PI 637530 lived Barely PE inflorescence 

Tanakiwase PI 652754 lived in boot

Dubouszki 129 PI 291449 lived dug up only plant

UzRosz M26 PI 291428 empty row

Hokkadu Wase PI 637536 lived

Hokkai 212 PI 652768 lived

Subjantoceros 12187 PI 596832 lived PE

Omirt 210 PI 282192 lived in boot

szocene PI 291456 lived in boot

Urosz 213 PI 282215 lived in boot

PE = partially emerged inflorescence

So also they were direct seeded on 5/24/2016

I grew them upland style my intention was to dig a paddy and transplant the greenhouse started plants into it. For a double experiment. Instead I murdered most of the greenhouse plants with inadequate fertilization...



Quote from: @bluemeadow" source="/post/119590/thread" timestamp="1481598418
Greenhouse survivors of nutrient deficet die of. 6 plants

1 plant of Gum Nisiki

1 plant of Hokkai 213

1 plant of UzRosz M30

3 plants UzRosz 2832



These were the results if my 2016 grow out as posted on homegrown goodness.

I have a packet of nigrescens from sherck seed. I read every rice description and decided it was the shortest season I didn't already have. I think I have a packet of something else from baker creek.

I need to grow out fresh seed.

I joined the EFN group but mainly plan to lurk as this project has been displaced a bit in my priority list by tomatoes.

What I read somewhere (forgot where) but never tested was to graft the potatoes on tomato rootstock to induce fructification. As the tomato cannot produce tubers, it induces the potato to put its reproductive energy into fruits...

This project sounds interesting! I'm interested in rice that not only would grow in a northern climate,  but in a regular field vs a flooded rice patty. There are varieties that do exist that do not need to be grown in a flood plain. Those are the ones I want.
