Nigeria releases AfricaRice “flood-tolerant” rice strains

3 Aug 2017, CCAFS

Two high-yielding flood-tolerant rice varieties have been approved for cultivation in Nigeria. The varieties are a result of precision breeding and are not genetically modified organisms. They will provide protection against short-term flooding and reassure farmers as they invest in other agricultural inputs such as fertilizer, leading to higher rice yields.
