Abstract

Rice (Oryza sativa) of the family Poaceae is a cereal with more than 10,000 cultivars that can be subdivided into three sub-species (ssp. indica, ssp. japonica, ssp. javanica) [(51)]. Rice is the staple food for about 2/3 of the world population. World-wide, more than 500 million MT rice are produced annually, of which 92% is harvested in Asia.
