Thamrin et al. 2012. Productivity and Resistancy of the Tungro-resistant Rice Variety in South Sumatra. JLSO 1(2):130-137. The establishment of new varieties is required to have the advantage of being more diverse and specific according to agroecosystem, problems in the field, the specific location and consumers’ preference.
