Abstract

Rice is the second most consumed cereal and has become the most important food source in Asian countries especially in south- east where it is an economic crop for many farmers (Arash, 2013). The cultivation of rice (Oryza sativa.L) by people began more than 10,000 years ago which led to development of rice culture over years, making it the staple crop for more than half of the world’s population (Jerome et. al. 2008). Telangana (including Andhra Pradesh) is a surplus rice growing state, with cultivated area of 39.46 lakh ha and average productivity of 3352 kg ha-1 during 2007- 2008 (ANGRAU Annual Report, 2007-2008). Rice is grown in almost all parts of the Telangana State in all seasons all kinds of soils and is rightly called as “Annapurna stateâ€, “Rice bowl of India†and “Granary of south Indiaâ€. Rice is a dominant staple food for about 70 million people and a major source of livelihood for nearly 70 per cent of rural household and is consumed in many forms.
