The Central Rice Research Institute (CRRI), Cuttack has successfully grown a glutinous (waxy) variety of rice called Aghunibora in the Orissa plains without losing its characteristic in the heat and humidity. Aghunibora is actually a cross between a traditional bora and a high- yielding variety developed at the Regional Rice Research Station of Assam Agricultural University, Titabor.
