CL151 is a very early, semi-dwarf variety developed at the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station. Since its release, it has been planted on more rice acreage than any other Clearfield® variety or hybrid. It has the highest yield potential of any pure-line variety and has garnered many acres throughout the South, but especially in the upper Mid-South. CL151 mills well but is known for its propensity for chalky kernels. CL151 is very susceptible to blast and straight head and susceptible to sheath blight and lodging.
