Root is an important plant part mainly responsible for absorption of water and nutrient, and hence root traits affect the plant growth and development under normal as well as under water stress and nutrient stresses. A RIL population consisting of 116 lines developed using a land race with deep and thick root was grown in mini-rhizotron for measuring root volume and root length. The genotypic data of this population was also developed using SSR markers. The QTL analysis leads to the identification of twenty four QTLs for root length and three QTLs for root volume, the markers linked to these traits were also identified.
