Researchers at Assam Agricultural University have developed two rice varieties, namely Ranjit Sub-1 and Bahadur Sub-1. These rice varieties were developed to get better yields under submerged conditions in state mainly Barak Valley.

Most parts of the state including Barak valley is prone to periodical flash floods particularly during the monsoon season.

About these two rice varieties
