Loto is a upland variety from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. An awnless variety, Loto's grains are considered a risotto type. Plants are compact in stature and tiller well.

Our initial seed stock came from Sherck Seeds. Here on our southeast Michigan homestead, we have successfully harvested from direct seeded plants for the last three years though 2020's harvest was diminished through considerable bird theft. Lesson learned - don't tempt fate by giving mature grains "just one more day."

If direct seeding, keep in mind rice seedlings are slow to emerge and establish, and don't do well with weed competition.
