New PVL04 is the first Provisia Rice System variety developed by the University of Arkansas breeding program. Multi-state tests show that it performs similar to PVL03 in the Coastal Region and better in the Northern Delta Region. It contains the Pi-ks and Pi-ta blast-resistant genes and has shown very good straw strength. PVL04 matures about two days later than PVL03 and, like PVL03, it has excellent package quality.
