Origination

It is considered that rice cultivation began simultaneously in many countries over 6500 years ago. At that time, two main types of rice were domesticated, Asian rice (Oryza Sativa) and African rice (Oryza Glaberrima). O. Sativa is known to have been originated around the foothills of the Himalayas with O. Sativa var. Indica from the Pak Indian side and O. Sativa var. Japonica from the Chinese side.

O. Sativa now famously known as long grain rice was adapted to farming in Pakistan and India around 800 BCE. It is still the eagerly demanded type of rice around the global market.
