Indian Scientists Develop Low Arsenic Absorbing Rice Variety “Muktashri”

Post by Sk on Sat Jul 18, 2015 7:18 am

High concentrations of arsenic, a highly toxic
element, in soil and water of Indo-Gangetic plains
have always been a cause of concern for the
people of the region. Scientists at CSIR-National
Botanical Research Institute (CSIR-NBRI),
Lucknow, have developed a variety of rice that minimizes the uptake of arsenic from the soil. The National Botanical Research Institute in
collaboration with Rice Research Station,
Chinsurah (West Bengal) has been developed rice
variety CN-1794-2¬CSIR-NBRI / Muktashri after
seven years of research. The variety minimizes
absorption of arsenic to a large extent even when grown in areas with high arsenic levels in soil. The
variety accumulates arsenic less than the
maximum permissible daily intake and also
provides high yields, he added It is under trials at present and would be released
by the West Bengal government in near future.
The process for registration of the variety has
been initiated. (Image is solely for representation purpose only) Source:
