|Abstract:||Traditional Indica rice varieties offered little chance of yield response to increased nitrogen fertilizer because they were prone to lodging (bending over) when they grew too tall. Development of dwarf rice cultivars with stiffer stems enabled rice farmers to increase yields with N inputs. Photos compare the tall and dwarf types and illustrate lodging.|
