From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Champa rice is a quick-maturing, drought resistant rice that can allow two harvests,[1] of sixty days each in one growing season. Champa rice originated from the aus subpopulation, which shares similarities with japonica and indica rice varieties of Eastern India, Myanmar, and Bangladesh.[2] Originally introduced into Champa from Vietnam, it was later sent to China as a tribute gift from the Champa state during the reign of Emperor Zhenzong of Song (r. 997–1022).[3][4] Consequently, Song officials gave Champa rice to peasants across China in order to boost yields, and its distribution was crucial in feeding the population of over 100 million in China.[5]

Commonly cultivated in India, Champa rice is consumed as main course in Southern parts of India.
