LSU AgCenter unveil new rice hybrid

A new hybrid rice with high quality and competitive yield perspective is being released by the LSU AgCenter.The long-grain hybrid, LAH169, was flourish at the H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station during the past seven years.LSU AgCenter hybrid rice breeder Jim Oard said LAH169 has good grain quality with low chalk. “It has 50 percent less chalk than the commercial hybrids currently available,” He said LAH169 can have a respectable yield.
Oard said. “The main crop yield performance of LAH169 in 25 trials in five locations across three years in Louisiana was 94 percent of RiceTec CLXL745, the most popular hybrid in Louisiana,” according to him “In limited trials across two years, the combined main and ratoon yields of LAH169 were nearly identical to CLXL745.” The new hybrid is moderately resistant to blast, sheath blight, and panicle blight, he said.
