Buyers have increasingly shown a preference for steam and parboiled Basmati over white Basmati due to its longer grain length, cooking quality, taste and fragrance. 1509 Basmati has also become increasingly popular amongst buyers and farmers, who have chosen to plant 1509 Basmati over other varieties in recent years.
