Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken with 33 coloured and white rice genotypes to identify promising slender grain genotypes with high yield and good nutrition quality. The study involved seven red pericarp, eight black pericarp and 17 white rice genotypes, in addition to the check, BPT 5204. The results revealed black pericarp genotypes to be in general, high yielding with intermediate amylose content, high phenol, protein, zinc and iron content, compared to the red pericarp and white rice genotypes studied in the present investigation. The red pericarp genotypes were in general noticed to be early with high antioxidant activity, compared to the black pericarp and white rice genotypes. The white rice genotypes, however, recorded higher head rice recovery per cent, compared to the red and black pericarp genotypes. Further, the red pericarp genotype, BPT 3178; black pericarp genotype, BPT 2848; and the white rice genotypes, BPT 2615, BPT 2782 and MTU 1281 were identified to be promising high yielding and nutritionally rich rice genotypes, compared to BPT 5204.
