Buluthi Nellu, a near-extinct rice variant, is predominantly grown in which state?

Answer: [C] Kerala

Buluthi Nellu, a rice variety, belongs exclusively to Attappady and is presently available with very few tribal farmers in Sholayur panchayat. It is now a near extinct rice variant because of large-scale land alienation and adverse climatic conditions, which forced the tribal people in Attappady to stop cultivating both upland and low land rice varieties.
