Abstract:

To estimate the diversity present in rice germplasm accessions collected from NBPGR, New Delhi, the present investigation was performed involving agro-morphological characterization of 48 rice genotypes based on 36 morphological and 15 agronomical and quality traits which revealed existence of sufficient variability in the germplasm accessions of rice. Among the 48 genotypes, the value of Shannons diversity index ranged between 0 to 1.242 with a mean of 0.524 showing wide range of variations for qualitative traits. The coefficient of variation for all quantitative traits ranged from 1.24 to 19 representing sufficient amount of variations in them. The germplasm accessions viz. IC0135883, IC0116088, IC0115346, EC0290871, IC0115512, IC0098713 were identified as best donors and could be used either as donors in rice breeding program or directly used for development of high yielding varieties with superior grain quality.
