Hybrid varieties of paddy based on useful characteristics

Rice

Rice is the staple food crop in most of the countries in Asia.  With the advent of hybrid rice technology the yield plateau in rice has been broken.  The adoption of hybrid seeds enables farmers to optimize seed rate there by reducing the seed cost and getting higher yields which eventually reduces the cost of cultivation and increases the profit. These hybrid varieties are high yielding and adaptable to different soil conditions.
