Aromatic rices constitute a small but an important sub-group of rice. These are rated best in quality and fetch much higher price than high
quality non-aromatic rice in international market. In spite of their importance, pace of improvement of this group of rice has been rather
slow. In addition to other problems related with their cross-compatibility with high yielding non-aromatic rices and high dependence of
expression of quality traits on environmental factors, lack of information on various aspects of these rices too have contributed towards
the slow pace of improvement of these rices.

Aromatic rices rices have long been popular in the orient, and are now becoming more popular in middle east, Europe and the United States.
Most of the trade in aromatic rice is from India, Pakistan and Thailand. Non-aromatic long and medium grained indicas and short grained
japonicas constitute the bulk (79%) of world trade, mainly dominated by Thailand, USA, Vietnam and Australia. Yet it is the aromatic
Basmati rice of the Indian sub-continent which clinches a premium and gets three-times higher price (US $ 800-1000 BMT) than high quality
non-Basmati types (US $ 200-300 BMT). Bulk of aromatic rice from India and Pakistan consists of Basmati types, while Thailand is the supplier of
Jasmine rice. Other important aromatic varieties in the world market are Khao Dawk Mali 105, Siamati (Thailand), Bahra (Afganistan), Sadri (Iran),
Della, Texamati and Kasmati (USA).
