1. Using the Basmati quality parental lines (CMS and restorer lines) developed at Indian Agricultural Research Institute, (IARI), New Delhi, the hybrid Pusa RH 10 was developed and it was released by CSCCSN&RV in July 2001 for commercial cultivation in the irrigated eco-systems of Haryana, Delhi and Uttaranchal.

2. It has an excellent grain quality early maturing hybrid, (in 115 days) as against 135 days taken by the best check variety Pusa Basmati 1, with 40% higher yield.

3. By virtue of its earliness, it is suitable for planting after the onset of monsoon without any yield reduction and has high per day productivity.

4.With the release of Pusa RH 10, the Indian Agricultural Research Institute and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research got credit of developing the world’s first superfine grain aromatic rice hybrids.
