Two novel paddy varieties

The Batalagoda Paddy Research Station invented two fresh strains of paddy.

According to paddy research officials attached to the Batalagoda Paddy Research Station, the two novel varieties of paddy are named as BG 369 and BG 3R. BG369 is a white rice variety.

A harvest of 100 to 125 bushels of paddy could be yielded through the cultivation of this variety in an acre. It is resistant to pests and insect diseases.

BG 3R is a red samba strain.

These grains of rice are small. About 140 to 150 bushels of paddy could be obtained in an acre from the variety.

This is also highly resistant to pests and all other diseases.

They could be cultivated even in brackish and salty lands.
