Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out at laboratory of Department of Seed Science and Technology OUAT Bhubaneswar. To identify aromatic short grain rice varieties by using modified phenol. In the present study, among thirty aromatic short grain rice varieties twelve aromatic short grain varieties reacted positively whereas remaining eighteen aromatic short aromatic grain rice varieties reacted negatively to modified phenol test. Based on modified phenol test, the aromatic short grain rice varieties were classified in to five groups as no change in colour (V3, V4, V6, V7, V11 V13, V15,V16, V17, V18, V20, V21, V24, V25, V26, V27, V28 and V29) light brown (V5 and V14), brown (V12), dark brown (V10 & V22) and Black (V1, V2, V8, V9, V19, V23 and V30). Thus, based on the colour reaction of palea and lemma of seeds to Modified phenol test can be effectively distinguished.
