Colorful rice planted for agritourism

Jul 4, 2017

The Fengxian Agricultural Technology Center has teamed up with the Shanghai Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Bright Food Co Ltd, and other organizations to cultivate 12 rice varieties, each distinct in color.

"The colorful rice can be used to create artistic patterns in paddies for the purpose of agritourism," said a rice expert working in the field.

Colorful rice already exists in nature and has more nutrition than normal rice. Their odd colors are caused by different types and amount of anthocyanin contained in the rice, experts said.
