Cotton Rice Pearl Millet  
Rasi Seeds has done extensive research for crop improvement incorporating latest technology in breeding techniques.


Cotton

When the Company launched its first set of cotton research hybrids namely RCH 1 and RCH 2 in the year 1992, the agricultural industry was overwhelmed at the tremendous yield that these hybrids produced.

RCH 2 especially created history by its remarkable yield in farmers’ fields. Rasi Seeds has been the first to engineer Genetic variability to suite various agro climatic zones with wider adoptability by producing hybrids of various staple lengths, high strength and a biotic stress tolerance in cotton.

Bollgard Cotton

Bt CottonRasi Seeds has released fourteen elite Bollgard cotton hybrids for commercial cultivation with approval of Genetic Engineering Approval Committee, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Govt. of India. With that Rasi emerged first in the number of Bollgard cotton released in India. Also many more hybrids are in pipeline to cover different segments in India.
