Breeding and Funotional Genomics in Rice
Super hybrid rice is defined as the new type hybrids that combine the harmonious plant type with heterosis (as showed on the cover) through hybridization between indica and japonica. China has developed 34 super hybrids and produced 6.7 thousand million kg more rice in 1998-2005. See pages 805-810 for details.
