New Rices for Africa (NERICAs) are crosses between the traditional African species of rice (Oryza glaberrima) and the Asian species (Oryza sativa), created by the Monty Jones at the Africa Rice Center (WARDA). NERICA rice seeds were initially introduced in 1996 and, by 2010, they covered 200,000 hectares in Africa.[1]
