CL111 is a very early, semi-dwarf rice variety developed at the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station. Since its release, it has been grown in all southern rice states and has become the most popular planted rice variety in South Louisiana over the past few years due to its excellent first-and second-crop yield potential. The variety has produced a highly marketable grain accepted both domestically and internationally. CL111 is moderately susceptible to blast and very susceptible to sheath blight and bacterial panicle blight.

  • This variety has genetic markers for Pi-ta, which confers resistance to the following blast races: IA45, IB1, IB49, IB54, IB45, IH1, IG1, IC17, IE1.

*Reactions may differ due to variability of strains among pathogens.

  • 1 Seed/lb is not an exact number; it is an average from multiple samples harvested over a wide geography.
  • 2 Seeding rate is a suggestion based on drill-seeding in ideal conditions and fungicide/insecticide treated seed. Planting non-treated seed is not recommended. Seeding rate should be increased by a minimum of 10 lbs/A when using non-treated seed, planting into a rough seedbed, water-seeding, high-pH soils and soils with salinity issues.
  • 3 Nitrogen rate is a suggested rate based on a two-way split nitrogen application with the first application being applied on dry soil.
