Determination of the most suitable rice varieties is to ensure the maximum sustained production for continuous economical development. In Fiji, multiple varieties of rice exist and it becomes important to identify the varieties best suited for commercial production to improve overall food security and to reduce the dependency on imports. Twenty varieties of rice cultivated in Fiji were analysed at IRRI to determine which varieties had the best characteristics for potential production. Results were correlated to determine if one variable would have an impact on another. Results indicated significant negative correlation between amylose content and the weight of milled rice (-0.715).
