Testing exotic varieties has been themain activity of the rice improvement program in Afghanistan. By 1979, 510IRRI cultures had been obtained, either directly from IRRI or from IRTP nur-series. Separate trials for fine-grainedand coarse-grained cultures were con-ducted at Jalalabad (eastern zone) andBaghlan (northern zone) 1971-80. Notrials could be arranged in Herat (west-ern zone). One local fine-grained variety — Barah at Baghlan and Pashadi,Lawangin or Behsudi at Jalalabad— was included as a check. Coarse-grainedcultures were compared with the localvariety LUK at both sites.

Three rice varieties for release inBombuwela
 P. E. Peiris, S. Abeysiriwardena, and E. Rajupaksa, Regional Agricultural ResearchStation, Bombuwela, India
Local variety Herath banda has threeimportant characters improved varietieslack: exceptionally fast seedling growth,red pericarp and high palatability, andthrip resistance.The 3-month strain BW 272-6B, bredto replace Herath banda, further consol-idates high yield potential, resistance tolodging, high resistance to leaf blast,optimum yield at low levels of nitrogen,moderate resistance to salinity, high pro-tein content (10-12.7%>), and suitabilityfor mineral, half bog, and bog soils.In farmers' fields BW 272-6B yieldedtwice as much as Herath banda. Theaverage yield of Herath banda is 1.0-1.3t/ha. The expected average yield of BW272-6B is 2.6 t/ha, with a yield potentialof more than 4.6 t/ha.Because more emphasis has been placed on the selection of early-maturingstrains, BW 267-3 and BW 266-7 haverecently emerged from the Bombuwelavarietal improvement program.BW 267-3 takes 108 days from sowingto maturity. It has a culm length of 74 cm and because of a fast early growthrate, its weed competitive ability is high.It is nonlodging. The grain is long andthe pericarp color is white. It is highlyresistant to blast, iron toxicity, grainspotting, and moderately resistant to bacterial blight and sheath blight.to maturity. It is 4-5 cm shorter thanBW 267-3. It is nonlodging and haswhite, long, slender, translucent grain of high quality. Even ripening and cleancrop are characteristic features. Thestrain is highly resistant to blast andgrain spotting and moderately suscepti- ble to bacterial blight and sheath blight.It is highly resistant to gall midge.BW 266-7 takes 102 days from sowing
