Bayer CropScience is excited about what it calls its new “yummilicious” hybrid rice variety with long grains and superior eating quality. It is called Arize AZ 7888.
Bayer reports that farmers from Oriental Mindoro, Isabela and Southern Leyte have witnessed the good-looking milled grain and best-tasting cooked rice of Arize AZ 7888 during the mini launches conducted between October and November 2016. Farmers were invited for a brief discussion on the new variety and gathered around for a boodle fight served with the yummilicious new variety.
The farmers were also treated to games, raffles, and take home t-shirts, caps, and Arize AZ 7888 miled rice. The grand launch has been scheduled sometime next year, 2017.
