Abstract:
The present study was conducted to evaluate twenty advance branded and unbranded varieties of rice for quality parameters. The samples was collected from market/ mandis and University farm as well after grading of the sample the quality analysis in the laboratory was conducted as per standard procedures in the laboratories of the Department of Agricultural Biochemistry. A significant variation was detected in all traits studied. There was considerable variability among varieties. Moisture content varied from 8.80-12.13 per cent. 1000 grain weight varied from 15.44-23.27 gm. Kernel length varied from 5.10-7.64 mm. Kernel breadth varied widely from 1.67-2.25 mm. Length breadth ratio varied widely from 2.47-4.02 mm. Protein content ranged from 7.03-8.12 per cent. Amylose content varied from 19.72-25.32 per cent. starch content varied from 76.00-85.85 per cent.
