It is a landrace, which means it is a locally adapted variety with a distinct identity of historical origin and it lacks any formal crop improvement. Its famed flavor, fragrance and elongation are what elevated basmati rice to one of the world's most recognized and best-loved rices. Better for People: Due to the introduction of basmati hybrids, traditional Dehraduni has lost a lot of production area.
