Lin, G. C., F. F. Hou and L. T. Chen
A new japonica rice variety “Taikeng Glutious 3” was developed by Chiayi Branch Station of the Tainan District Agricultural Station in June, 1995. This variety was selected from the cross between J752019 and Taikeng Glutinous 1 in 1987. The breeding line was named “Taikeng yuh 9386” in 1989 from the pedigress of that cross for further experiment. The observational, preliminary, advanced and the regional yield trials, as well as other screen testing of this line were conducted between 1890 and 1994. After evaluating by the Committee of Registration for New Rice Varieties of the Provincial Department of Agriculture and Forestry, “Taikeng Yuh 9386” was finally named as “Taikeng Glutinous 3” in June, 1995. This medium to late maturing variety is characterized with the quality, and having acceptable shattering rate.
