Published on : 30-Jun-2012



This book begins with a brief description of geography and climatic conditions in Goa and also provides a glimpse of the origin and antiquity of cultivated rice and Oryza species-complexes. It essentially brings out results of an in-depth study based primarily on description of 50 rice varieties presently grown in Goa under different situations and distinct growing conditions. Out of this set of varieties, 28 are locally adapted indigenous cultivars grown traditionally in Goa while 22 are high yielding improved varieties introduced from other states.
