Technical Abstract: Four genetic stocks were developed by induced mutation, in indica rice germplasm. These were : apoptosis or early plant death; chives or narrow leaf; extreme dwarf only 24 cm tall; and gold leaf color developing at about 78 days of age. These mutants were added to the Genetic Stocks—Oryza (GSOR) collection so that they can be available to researchers studying gene function in rice. Each mutant is controlled by a single recessive gene.
