The quality superior seeds have characteristics of high yields, resistant to plant diseases, the planting to harvest period is short, and the taste is good. The government of Indonesia continues to conduct efforts in increasing agriculture products specifically rice paddy. This is conducted done to assure the national food resilience, in order to achieve the target of a surplus of 10 million tons of rice in the year 2014.

Research and development in application of isotope and radiation technology conducted by BATAN is designed to contribute towards the enrichment of the number of Indonesian national varieties. Until the year 2013, besides the 20 superior paddy variety, also produced are 8 varieties of soybeans, 2 varieties of mungbeans, 1 variety of sorghum and tropical wheat.
