As a cereal grain, it is the most broadly consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in Africa and Asia. Quality seed is very important to increase production. It is necessary to maintain the varietal purity of seed, and control the seed-borne disease for the production of high-quality seed. The rice seeds are produced by using techniques such as a two-line system and three-line rice seed-producing system. The rice seeds are available in the treated and untreated form where treated rice seeds are widely used by the pharmaceutical industry.
