Directorate of Rice Research (DRR),Hyderabad has developed a high yielding hybrid DRRH-3 with medium slender grain type for irrigated ecology. It can be cultivated in areas with assured irrigation, where fine- grained rice varieties are preferred and widely cultivated. This hybrid can give about 23-30% more yield than BPT 5204. The grain quality traits of the hybrid are similar to that of a popular variety Samba Mahsuri (BPT-5204).
It has medium slender grains with higher milling (>71%), head rice recovery (>60%), L/B ratio (2.61), intermediate amylose content (24%) and gel consistency of 63 mm.

MOAs signed with eight seed companies for large scale seed production &popularization of DRRH 3.
