Abstract:

Studies on comparative evaluation of seed and grain quality parameters of rice (Oryza sativa L.) varieties under SRI and conventional methods of rice cultivation was conducted at Directorate of Rice Research farm, ICRISAT campus, Patancheru, Hyderabad during Kharif 2013. Except seed germination all other seed quality parameters viz., seedling length, seedling dry weight, vigour index I and II (3005.82) (15430.22), respectively and grain quality parameters such as the grain length, amylose content and alkali spreading value recorded significantly higher values in SRI (System of Rice Intensification) method compared to Conventional Transplanting (CT). Akshayadhan recorded significantly higher seed quality parameters such as seedling length (33.43 cm), and vigour index II (19045.00). Hybrid PA 6444 recorded the higher seed vigour index I (3262.11). Amylose content recorded significantly higher values in Varadhan and alkali spreading value was significantly higher in Jaya. SRI method was found better over traditional method in respect of seed and grain quality attributes of rice.
