Yield in rice (Oryza sativa) is determined by three major components: panicle number per plant, grain weight, and grain/spikelet number per panicle (Zhou et al., 2015). Grain number per panicle is one of the main targets, and mainly results from the number of spikelets. Traditionally, rice breeders have focused on the improvement of spikelet number per panicle and rarely focused on the number of florets because a normal rice spikelet has one fertile floret and produces one seed.
