CL153 is a very early, semi-dwarf rice variety developed at the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station. CL153 is widely adapted, having performed equal to or greater than CL151 across all locations from Texas to Missouri. CL153 has very good grain length, translucency and whole milled rice output, making it acceptable by the mills. CL153 contains the Pita gene that confers broad-spectrum blast resistance to all prevalent blast races in the southern USA. CL153 packages the yield potential, blast tolerance and milling quality advances in a plant that offers excellent standability.
