Abstract
BRRI dhan63 is a new premium quality Boro rice variety like Soru Balam which is an improvement over existing premium quality rice BRRI dhan50 (Banglamati). BRRI dhan63 has satisfactorily passed in the proposed variety trial conducted in the farmers’ field. As a result National Seed Board (NSB) has been released this variety for commercial cultivation in the dry season (Boro) of Bangladesh in 2014. BRRI dhan63 is a modern rice variety having similar plant type with BRRI dhan50. The straw colored long slender grain like Pakistani Basmati rice is the main characteristics of this variety. The important feature is the higher elongation ability of the cooked rice of BRRI dhan63. The growth duration of BRRI dhan63 is 148-150 days which is 4-6 days earlier growth duration than BRRI dhan50. Thousand grain weight of the variety is 22.1 gm. The rice has 25.0% amylose content with 8.2% protein content. The special character of the variety is it has shattering resistance. As it has long flag leaf with deep green leaf color so the whole plot looks very beautiful. BRRI dhan63 can produce 6.5 to 7.0 t/ha yield with proper management. The export quality rice BRRI dhan63 is an excellent variety for cultivating in the Boro season so that farmers can earn more profit by the cultivation of BRRI dhan63.
