Rice being the staple food of the world, its production is of immense importance. But rice productivity is dependent on appropriate light intensity, among other factors. This review focuses on morphological, physiological and biochemical the effects of low light on rice yield and quality. An attempt has been made to give the progress made in this important area of rice research along with future research directions that can be taken to improve rice grain yield and quality under low light stress.
