High Yielding Rice Varieties and Hybrids Developed at NRRI

Rice is grown under varying eco-systems on a range of soils under varying climatic and hydrological conditions ranging from waterlogged and poorly drained to well drained situations. Rice is also grown in different ecologies from irrigated to upland, rain-fed lowland, deep water and very deep or tidal wetland ecologies. Upland rice is grown in around 6.0 million ha of well-drained soil where the moisture stress and blast are the major constraints and productivity is around 1t/ha. Mostly early maturing varieties of 80 to 110 days duration are grown, depending upon the rainfall pattern and soil topography. Rainfed lowland rice is grown in around 13.0 million ha, mostly in eastern India, where soil moisture is available for longer period and rice varieties of 140-145 days duration to photosensitive types harvested from mid-November to mid-December are grown. The water depth varies in rain-fed lowlands and it can be shallow up to 25cm, and medium deep waterlogged up to 50cm. Deep water rice is grown in areas where water depth is more than 50cm up to 2 meter and around 4 million has area is under cultivation in Eastern India with an average productivity of 0.8 t/ha. Most of the deep water rice area is now being under boro and dry season rice due to low productivity of deep water rice. Rice is also grown in Coastal wetlands where tidal water fluctuates as per Moon cycle and period of day. Soil salinity is a problem in areas near the creeks in wet season and in dry season rice.

In India more than 1200 varieties were released for cultivation suitable different ecosystems and out of them 128 varieties (23 Upland, 9 Aerobic, 45 Irrigated, 2 Boro, 23 Shallow lowland, 14 Semi deep water, 6 Deep water, 6 Coastal saline) have been contributed from NRRI, Cuttack. The varieties released by Central Varietal Release Committee (CVRC) have wider adaptability as they are recommended for more than one state. A list of these varieties are furnished below with their duration, grain type, yield potential, reaction to major disease and insects grain quality and tolerance to different adverse situations.
