In Northern Australia and locally around Townsville there are several native wild rice species growing in a variety of habitats. These wild rices are well adapted to the local environment and may have traits for example drought tolerance, disease resistance that could be transferred/bred into domestic rice. With selection the native wild rices could perhaps also be developed into a northern grain industry in their own right.
