To evaluate the selectivity of some post-emergence herbicides for weed control in rainfed lowland rice
Despite having fewer roots in deeper layers, rainfed lowland rice can extract water from below a 15-cm soil depth (Wade et al., 1999).
Genetic improvement in the root system of rainfed lowland rice has been slow, partly because of the lack of a reliable screening system for phenotyping.

Opportunities to Manipulate Nutrient- by -Water Interactions in Rainfed Lowland Rice
To date, 44 indica inbred cultivars from IRRI, including IR5 and IR8, have been released in the Philippines for the irrigated and favorable rainfed lowland rice systems (Table 2).
The 44 indica inbred cultivars developed by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) for the irrigated and favorable rainfed lowland rice systems.
Genotypic differences in grain yield of transplanted and direct- seeded rainfed lowland rice
(Oryza sativa L.) in northeastern Thailand.
While upland rice is indeed described as a plant with "deep, thick roots," the rainfed lowland rice is required to posses an ambiguous "extensive root system." Among the root traits studied, total root length (TRL) is strongly related to drought resistance under upland conditions.
