Black rice from Uttar Pradesh’s Chandauli to be exported to Australia and New Zealand.
Jun 25, 2020

Produced by a group of farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Chandauli district - known as the rice bowl of eastern UP - black rice will now be exported to the foreign countries.
 
The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) has already started planning for the same, divisional commissioner Deepak Agarwal said.
 
At a function chaired by Agarwal in Chandauli recently, an exporter purchased around 90 metric tonnes of the raw black rice (black paddy) at the rate of Rs 85 per kilogram.
 
Agarwal has appealed to the farmers to grow black paddy because that way the farmers will get a very good price of their produce.
