Area and Production of Aromatic Rice Crop

Worldwide production and yield of crops have been increasing since 1960 due to the adoption of modern varieties, the expansion of agricultural lands, and the use of intensification measures. Yield growth accounted for almost all of the increases in food production in developing countries. Modern varieties accounted for 21% of the growth in yields and about 17% of production growth in the early Green revolution period, and accounting for almost 50% of yield growth and 40% of production growth in

Aromatic rice and its characteristic features

Every state in the country has its own quality/specialty rice varieties. Aromatic or scented rice have long been highly regarded in Indian society not only because of their excellent quality but also because they had been considered auspicious. The aromatic rice varieties in the states of West Bengal, Orissa, Chattisgarh, Bihar and North East region are very short, fine grained and highly scented. Each one is highly priced in the locality where they are grown. These varieties are characterised b

Aromatic Rice: Present and Future Perspective

 Rice (Oryza sativa), one of the three most important food crops in the world, forms the staple diet of 2.7 billion people. It is grown successfully in different parts of the world from 39°S south (Australia) to 50°N latitude (China). It can grow at altitudes ranging from 10 feet below sea level to 10,000 feet above sea level.

Rice is a major food crop that is grown in dry land (or upland) conditions on mountain slopes as well as in wetland conditions in Valley bottoms a


Ten to fifteen days before transplantation plough the soil thoroughly and submerge in 5-10cm standing water. Add 2-3 t/acre of green manure and incorporate it by puddling. Then level the soil perfectly. In soils, having more than 8.5 pH apply 100-150 kg zypsum/acre.
The crop is transplanted in the mainfield at 25-30days after sowing.

Profitability of System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

Water is going to be most critical input in the future for agriculture in general and rice in particular. Of all the crops, rice uses more than 70 % of all irrigation water in India. Also, there is a notion that higher yields in rice come with high investments on seed, irrigation, high doses of fertilizers and more use of pesticides. This practice not only results in higher cost of cultivation but also may not give the desired results in the longer run. Contrary to this popular view, SRI me
