Major Rice Cultivar Found in Nepal

Rice Genetic Resources of Nepal

More than 1700 rice landraces are reported in Nepal growing from 60 to 3050 m altitude. Considering this importance of rice diversities, the National gene Bank of Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC) has conserved more than 3980 germplasm collected and received from national and international sources (Nepal-1141, IRRI-2672, USA-121, Russia-40 and Africa-6).

Rice account about 42.5 percent of the total land area coverage under food grains and the share on total production is about 51.6 (MOAD, 2013).
