Green technology approach by using organic fertilizer is an alternative to the intensive rice farming in reducing the use of chemical inputs that has changed the soil fertility and organisms surround it. Six treatments using enriched organic fertilizer were evaluated their performance towards fragrant rice yield and soil fertility. Research has found that DOBE and compost fertilizer could increased the soil conductivity, number of plant per meter square and number of panicle per meter square and indirectly would increase the yield of MRQ 74. © 2014 Penerbit UTM Press.

Rice Genebank located in MARDI Seberang Perai was the first seeds bank in Malaysia which was established in year 1989 with the objective for conserving the diversity of Malaysian rice germplasms from extinction and for utilization in future research and breeding program. The germplasms were gathered through collection expeditions in entire Malaysia, while the foreign seed varieties were gathered through collaboration project involved seeds exchange. Until now, a total of 12,258 accessions of rice are conserved in this Genebank comprised of 32% of traditional rice varieties, 35.7% of released rice varieties and breeding lines developed by MARDI and the remaining are consisted of introduced rice varieties. This study observed the rice accessions conserved in the genebank are highly variability. Several morphological traits of rice also shown highly significant correlations between traits; thus this finding is important for research and variety development for produce new high-yielding rice variety for accommodate the national food supply. © 2014 Penerbit UTM Press.
