Samba Mahsuri (BPT 5204) is the major fine grain rice variety grown in an area of 1, 10, 000 hectares in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh which is also known as Kurnool Sona. Due to continuous cultivation of the variety, it has become susceptible to pests and diseases resulting in reduction in yields and net returns to farmers. Another fine grain variety NDLR 7. (Nandyal Sona) is developed and released from Regional Agricultural Research Station, Nandyal during 2016 (notified in 2018) as an alternative to BPT 5204. NDLR 7 Nandyal Sona) is suitable to two seasons due to its short duration, fine grain, tolerance to BPH, leaf folder and blast and higher market price compared to BPT 5204. The paper discuss the success of NDLR 7 fine grain paddy variety by the farmers of different regions as an alternate to BPT 5204.
