20kg – Dehraduni basmati means ‘the best basmati rice’. It is grown in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh in the Himalayan foothills. The grains have a fragrance particularly suited to Indian food. Dehraduni Basmati rice is cultivated in a region that is flat, no higher than 700 meters altitude, located south of the Ganges River and north of the Yamuna River. All of the phases of cultivation are done by hand with traditional methods (from the transplanting of the seed to the harvest) and simple tools are used: sickle, plough and wooden harrow dragged by oxen. The rice is cultivated in rotation with peas, pulses, millets and wheat, or with mustard and wheat grain.
