Abstract:

A total of 112 elite genotypes of temperate rice (Oryza sativa L.) were evaluated and characterized for some grain quality parameters [KLBC, KLAC, KBBC, KBAC, LBR, KER, AAC, GC, GT (by means of ASV) and aroma]. The investigated traits showed a wide range of variability. In the present experimental plant material medium sized (66.96%) and bold shaped (50.00%) grains, low AAC (79.65%), soft GC (56.03%), high ASV (47.32%) and low GT (47.32%) were found to be prevalent. Aroma was reported in seven genotypes namely Black Rice, Muskbudji, Pusa 1509 and Pusa Sugandha 3. Four out of these seven genotypes viz. Black Rice, Mehvan Green, Mushkandi-I and Kamad were possessing mild aroma and suspected to have aroma other than popcorn alike characteristic aroma. LBR showed a significantly positive correlation with KLBC, KLAC and Amylose content. Further, the principle component analysis (PCA) revealed the existence of substantial level of variability due to investigated traits.
