A Comparative Analysis of Some Popular Rice Cultivars in Dhubri District of Assam

Sanjeev Kumar Sharma [2]

Abstract: Rice, a vital staple for half the world's population, plays a pivotal role in food security and nutrition. With the increasing global population, the demand for high-yield rice production is on the rise. However, challenges in meeting this demand persist, especially in countries like India. This study focuses on characterizing popular rice cultivars in Dhubri district, Assam, using morphological, physiological, and biochemical parameters. It reveals a rich diversity of rice varieties in the region, with distinct characteristics related to grain size, shape, and aroma. Traditional rice landraces remain crucial, not only for their agronomical attributes but also for their cultural and commercial significance. Additionally, the study underscores the importance of assessing rice quality for its nutritional contribution to human health, particularly in areas like Dhubri district, where rice is a primary source of sustenance. These findings hold significant implications for addressing food security and nutritional challenges in flood-prone, socio-economically disadvantaged regions, emphasizing the need for comprehensive rice quality evaluations to combat hidden hunger and enhance both rural economies and human well-being.
