A deep and thick root system has been thought advantageous for improved drought tolerance in the rainfed lowland ecosystem, based on extrapolation from experience with upland rice (O'Toole, 1982; and Fukai and Cooper, 1995).
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.

The significance of phenotyping conditions for the identification of QTL for deep root traits, even in the absence of water stress, emphasizes the importance of choosing conditions comparable with the critical characteristics of the target environment in rainfed lowland fields (Wade et al., 1998).
The advantages of deeper root growth during progressive stress for water extraction from soil and for maintenance of plant growth were demonstrated in a pot system that simulated rainfed lowland conditions (Kamoshita et al., 2000).
