Rice Roots

1.    Shortly after rice seed germination, the fibrous root system of the rice plant begins to develop both outward and downward from the plant's base.
2.    Finely-branched adventitious roots arise from the lower nodes of the stem (Culm).
3.    The size and length of the roots vary. Drained conditions are best for good root development th


Introduction of Rice Plant

1.    Rice (Oryza sativa) is an aquatic grass belongs to the family Poaceae. It is native to Tropical and Sub-tropical Southeastern Asia and to Africa.

2.    The plant, which needs both warmth and moisture to grow, measures 2-6 feet tall and has long, flat, pointy leaves and stalk-bearing spikelets which produce the grain known as rice.



Suitable Season for Hybrid Rice Cultivation

1. Rice hybrids can be grown both in kharif as well as rabi seasons. 2. The long duration hybrids should not be cultivated during rabi season and even for medium duration hybrids. 3. Care should be taken to see that plantings are not delayed, otherwise the flowering may coincide with high temperatures in April/May, thus adversely affecting yields.
