The Central Rice Research Institute (CRRI), Cuttack, India is a premier national institute working on basic, strategic and applied aspects of rice. CRRI has developed more than 84 high yielding rice varieties for various ecosystems including drought and flood prone areas, employing both conventional and molecular breeding approaches. It has an extensive collection of germplasm along with established infrastructure facilities for screening germplasm against drought and other abiotic and biotic stresses. It has very good linkage with farmers and conducts ‘on farm research’/participatory varietal selection. A multidisciplinary team is working on the genetic improvement of elite lines with tolerance to drought using advanced breeding approaches.

Co-Investigators: Dr Sushanta Kumar Dash, Dr Padmini Swain, Dr Lambodar Behera, Dr Biswanath Sadangi
