PSTOL1: Potential to Increase rice yield using the land race Kasalath

Rice geneticists have isolated a gene that facilitates rice plants to generate around 20% more grain by enhancing uptake of a vital essential element, namely, phosphorus. The gene designated PSTOL (Phosphorus Starvation Tolerance), can significantly increase rice yield grown in phosphorus-deficient soil and also helps regulate the early crown root development and root grow
