Novel varieties of paddy

The Labuduwa Paddy Research Station has invented novel varieties of paddy. They are named as LD-3-6-12 white samba and LD-3-12-50 red samba.

According to paddy researchers these two paddy varieties have already been introduced to farmers for cultivation purposes. These two varieties are highly resistant to all pests, diseases and insects as well. 80 to 100 bushels could normally be harvested by successfully growing them in an acre of land in the wet zone. They have presently a high demand and also very popular among paddy growers in the Southern region, research officials attached to Labuduwa Paddy Research Centre said.
