One of the notable features of IRRI-6 rice is its affordability compared to premium basmati rice varieties. This makes it a popular choice for households and restaurants looking for cost-effective options.
IRRI-6 rice is favored by farmers due to its relatively high yield potential and adaptability to different growing conditions. It has shown resilience against certain diseases and environmental factors.
