The article reports on the broader range of product offerings of hybrid rice in the U.S. in 2009. It states that the hybrid rice is associated with heterosis known as hybrid vigor which is the result of a wide genetic cross between two distantly related parents. In addition, hybrids are less susceptible to drought due to a larger root system. An overview of the broad range of production options of the hybrid rice is presented.
