Bayer AG to Introduce Flood-resistant Hybrid Rice Variety to the Indian Market

In December 2019, Bayer AG announced that the company is planning to introduce a flood-resistant hybrid rice variety to the Indian market. The variety has already been launched by the company in Bangladesh and is awaiting regulatory approvals in India. The launch of this innovative product is predicted to be highly successful in India, which is an agriculture-driven nation. In addition, this will help save the huge losses the growers suffer every year because of the floods.
