Abstract:
Investigation was undertaken at Crop Research Station, (ANDUAT) Masodha during 2019 to study the performance of various rice genotypes. The present study was carried out to characterize nine hundred seventy five rice germplasm accessions on the basis of twenty-nine morphological and eight agronomical traits. Most of the morphological characters showed variation in different accessions except leaf: collar leaf: ligule and leaf: shape of ligule. A significant amount of variation was displayed for most of the agronomical traits examined. After evaluation of 975 accessions for eight quantitative characters, on the basis of mean values, top ten accessions were identified for the yield and ancillary traits. These can be used to identify phenotypically divergent sources for traits of interest in breeding programmes.
