Abstract

A new long duration rice: KKL (R) 1, suitable for Samba season was developed. It recorded an average grain yield of 5524 kg/ha with an increase of 4.58% over CR 1009 and 5.97 % over ADT 44 respectively. It has medium slender grain with white rice and possesses good cooking qualities comparable to that of Improved white Ponni. It is moderately tolerant to sheath rot.
