Work experience
There are 2 types of project being done. First rice breeding for tolerance to saline soil condition. The project compose of salt tolerance parent selection, crossing beta KDML 105 (non glutinous good cooking quality rice) and RD6 (glutinous good cooking quality rice) with salt tolerant rice varieties. Then using molecular selection by marker assisted selection for salt tolerance, aroma, wax, and blast resistant with good cooking quality rice. Second, Effect of plant nutrition, sulphur, calcium, manganese and magnesium on 2AP content, Grain yield and Grain Quality of KDML 105. The project composed of soil analysis for 5 sites to determine the amount of nutrient need to add to rice paddy field based on the objective to improve aromatic fragrant of KDML 105 in NE Thailand paddy field.
