Kerala is one of the States with maximum consumption of rice. Wide varieties of rice have been cultivated by the farmers of the State. Research institutes and agricultural universities are keen towards the development of high yielding varieties, derivatives and hybrids of rice time to time. Farmers of the state are clever enough to choose the best variety for cultivation. Conversion of paddy field for other practices, lack of trained labours, and sudden change in climate demands most suitable variety of rice to choose the farmers for better production. Towards this end a database is developed to help the farmers to know the different varieties of rice and its suitable climate and season for cultivation. It provides details of all the rice varieties practicing in Kerala.
