ACM8, derived from the cross IR8 x W123, was released during 1989 as MDU3. It is resistant to Orseolia oryzae, brown planthopper and leaffolder (Cnaphalocrocis medinalis), and moderately resistant to white-backed planthopper blast and brown spot (Cochliobolus miyabeanus). It is a semi-dwarf plant, maturing in 120-125 days (5-10 days earlier than the local IR20).
