Abstract

Rice is a vital staple food worldwide, serving as a major source of calories for a significant portion of the global population. In India, where agriculture plays a pivotal role in the economy, rice production has witnessed remarkable growth over the past few decades. This growth is supported by advancements in agricultural technology, including the introduction of high-yielding seeds, chemical fertilizers, and agrochemicals. India stands as a key player in rice production, covering vast areas and contributing significantly to the nation's food grain output.

Telangana, a state in India, has seen a substantial increase in paddy production, owing to government initiatives, irrigation projects, and investments. The development of high-yielding rice varieties that are well-suited to the region's soil conditions has played a crucial role in this growth. These varieties exhibit resistance to various biotic and abiotic stresses, contributing to a sustained increase in paddy production. The state's remarkable progress in rice cultivation is evident through the data on area coverage, production, and productivity The study delves into the area coverage of popular rice varieties across seasons in Telangana. It reveals that coarse and fine rice varieties dominate Kharif and Rabi seasons, respectively, with MTU 1010 being the most extensively cultivated. This article provides valuable insights into the extent of adoption of popular rice varieties among farmers of Telangana.

Keywords: Agrarian economy, rice production, Telangana, high-yielding varieties, popular paddy varieties
