Early ripe Parija Aus paddy developed by RDRS
Rangpur Dinajpur Rural Service (RDRS) is trying to popularise the cultivation of Parija rice as an additional crop in between Aman and Boro in greater Rangpur region.
Parija is one of the disappeared Aus varieties of rice.
Farmers in the region used to cultivate the early harvest variety during Aus season. Aman and Boro farmers are still ignored about Parija cultivation.
