High yields combined with salt and drought tolerance in transgenic Bangladeshi Rice BRRIdhan 28

Abiotic stresses like salinity and drought directly affect plant growth and water availability, resulting in lower yield in rice. Salinity and drought tolerance mechanisms are very complex and usually regulated by multiple genes. Moreover, along with stress tolerance, enhanced grain yield is also a major focus of rice breeding. Previous studies separately showed that mutations or lo
