Abstract:

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the foremost important food crop in the world especially in Asiatic Continent. It is ranking second to the wheat among the most cultivated cereals in the world. Rice has widest germplasm collection than other cereal crops. It has to be made productive through several achievements in rice breeding programme, especially in sustainable food grain production with quality concern and it is undoubtedly the most important cereal of the world providing 21 per cent of global human per capita energy and 15 per cent of per capita protein. The mature rice grain, after removal of the hull (husk), again consists of the embryo and the starchy endosperm, surrounded by the seed coat, comprised of remnant tissues of testa and pericarp. The seed coat, embryo and the aleuronic layer from the bran is removed during the milling (often called polishing in rice) process. Most of the seed proteins are located in the rice bran. Thus is a need to collect, exploit and evaluate the untapped germplasms of Rice. Keeping this in view, an attempt was made to evaluate a set of thirty eight traditional land races with high yielding ruling varieties of protein content estimation this study will definitely impact for better parental selection in future crop breeding point of view.
