Nellore rice

A rice variety, NLR 34449 (Nellore Masoori), developed by NG Ranga Agriculture Research Station in Nellore and introduced in the market after successful trials a few years ago has become popular not only in AP but also in neighbouring Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra.

It is preferred because of high yields to the extent of three to five puttis (one putti is equal to 850 kg of paddy) an acre as against three puttis for other varieties. It is also blast resistant, non-lodging and suitab-le for machine harvesting. The size of the grain is thin and it is among the fine varieties in the market.
