Our DSIR-certified programme focuses on developing strong rice
hybrid traits, approved in India and the Philippines, which adapt well
to varied conditions.
Headed by Dr. R.N. Rao, ex-Scientist - CRRI, with more than 40 years of breeding experience, the Delta Rice Research Team focuses on the following aspects to develop high-quality traits in hybrid paddy and varietal paddy:
- A wide collection of germplasm
- Conventional and MAS breeding techniques
- High-intensity performance trials across different agro-climatic regions.
Our rice seed varieties boast of a superior performance not only in India, but also in Nepal, Bangladesh and the Philippines. The Philippines Rice Board recently approved two Delta’s rice hybrids for recommendations.
