New variety of rice developed by University of Arkansas
STUTTGART, Ark. - A new variety of long-grain rice from the University of Arkansas matures early and is cold tolerant and moderately resistant to common rice blast, a rice expert says.

The new variety is called Spring. It was developed by the university's Division of Agriculture and matures in about 110 days, about 10 days earlier than other varieties.

Also, its cold tolerance allows farmers to plant earlier and take advantage of spring rains to help save water, says Karen Moldenhauer, rice breeder for the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. The variety has good seedling vigor, good milling yield and high yield potential when harvested in a timely manner.

Spring is available this year to qualified seed growers. Registered seed will be available to rice producers in 2006.

In Arkansas tests, Spring yielded an average 158 bushels per acre, comparing favorably with Jefferson, Ahrent and Cocodrie. It had consistently higher yields than Maybelle, the only other variety with similar maturity.

In tests conducted over three years in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, the new variety showed an average grain yield of 171 bushels per acre in Arkansas and higher yields in Texas and Louisiana.
