About






Katarni, a superior fine grain variety is a Ceremonial Rice grown in Bihar and is known for its pleasant fragrance, local relish and excellent cooking quality. The Rice variety was introduced by Maharaja Rahmat Khan Bahadur and has equal export potential as that of Basmati Variety.

Despite its uniqueness, Katarni rice is facing the threat of extinction. Since 1991–92, there has been a significant decrease in the area of Katarni rice cultivation, mainly due to: (i) increased irrigation cost, (ii) higher production of other paddy varieties; (iii) declining demand in local as well as global market due to introduction of adulterated variety in the market. It has recently been tagged with Geographical Indication for certain blocks under the Bhagalpur, Banka and Munger districts of Bihar. Due to its unique quality characteristics, it has immense export potential.
