Karan 16 was developed in India decades ago as a fast-maturing, productive variety to feed its growing population. Characteristics bred into Karan 16 include high protein grains on short (12-14 inch) plants that are sturdy and vigorous in tillering.
When planted in SE Michigan in mid-April, Karan 16 is quick to emerge even when we've had cold weather.
