2  Work started in 2011 under NCST funding.  In 2012, we approached NIB which agreed to support the project financially.  Project is being conducted in four phases Phase one: Adaptability of breeding rice lines in Kenya at KARI Mwea (In green house and natural conditions):-Done Phase Two: Breeding. Hybridization between Basmatis (370 and 217 ) as paternal parents and PGMS and TGMS rice lines (Obtained from IRRI):- On going. Phase Three: Natural sterility induction in Mombasa; On going. HYBRID RICE PROJECT

3 Phase 4: Production of hybrid rice in Bunyala and Mwea. Publication Kanya J.I., Njiru P.N., Kimani J.N., Wanjogu R.K. (2013): Evaluation of Photoperiod and Thermosensitive Genic Male Sterile Lines For Hybrid Rice Seeds Production in Kenya. International Journal of Agronomy and Agricultural Research ( (Print) (Online) Vol. 3, No. 2, p , 2013).

4 1.1 Background : Rice production in Kenya  Over 300 tonnes of rice is consumed in Kenya.  About 100 tones is locally produced.  In Kenya rice is mainly grown in Mwea, Ahero, Bunyala, West Kano, Yala Swamp (MoA, 2011).  About 98% of Mwea rice is Basmati.  By year 2030 Kenya population is expected to be 60.0million.  Rice yield is expected to increase 600% to feed the population.

5 Year Kenya Population 38m40m60m?? Production (Tones) 64,840100,00?? Area (ha)23,106?? Table1. Source: NCPB and Department of Land, Crops Development and Management, USDA

6 Global Concerns  High yielding varieties (HYV) dwarf rice varieties have reached breeding plateau hence global yield.  Green revolution technology now need re- innovation.

7  Low yield per hectare of Basmati rice (4.1ha) (Ministry of Agriculture, 2010).  Rice consumption is far above production.  Rice diseases like blast continue to reduce yields (Wanjogu and Mugambi, 2001).

8  Hybridization has been used to increase rice yield per hectare (Zhang, 2010).  High yield is due to heterosis or hybrid vigour.

9 1.5 Measuring heterosis? Mid-Parent (MP) heterosis (F1 performs better than mean of two parents): F1-MP MP X100 Better Parent (BP) heterosis (F1 performs better than better parent): Standard heterosis (F1 performs better than the check variety): F1-BP BP X100 F1-CK CK

10  To make a cross Male and female parents are needed.  a) Female need to have non-viable male gametes so that they can be crossed with another variety.  b) Male parent: need to have viable pollen.

13  Male emasculation is done to induce m ale sterility, a condition in which the pollen grains are not viable to fertilize normally to set seeds. Methods of male emasculation a) Environmental Genic Male sterility method (EGMS) ‣ PGMS – photoperiod sensitive genic male sterile lines. Uses long daylight length to induce sterility ‣ TGMS - thermosentive genic male sterile lines Uses high temperature to induce sterility

14 b) Cytoplasmic genetic male sterility (CMS) Male sterility is controlled by the interaction of a genetic factor (S) present in the cytoplasm and nuclear gene (s). c) Chemically induced male sterility Male sterility is induced by some chemicals (gametocides).

15 .  Based on the discovery of P(T)GMS mutant  Male sterility controlled by 1 or 2 pairs of recessive gene(s) Fertile S-line Multiplication Critical Fertility Point Critical Sterility Point Reproductive Upper Limit Reproductive Lower Limit Sterile F1 Seed Production Partial Sterility Model of Sterility / Fertility Expression for TGMS Rice Temperature low high

16 Use hybrid rice technology to raise yield i ) Introduce EGMS in Kenya and test for their adaptability. ii) Develop Basmati with EGMS gene. iii) Produce hybrids by crossing EGMS-Basmati with conventional Basmati.
