For the establishment of the distinctness among thirty-five landraces of rice, twenty nine characters were used. Characterization of thirty-five landraces of rice was done using twenty nine agro-morphological traits following Distinctiveness, Uniformity and Stability test (DUS) during kharif season of 2014 at the DRR farm, ICRISAT campus. Out of thirty-five varieties studied, twenty-two were found to be distinctive on the basis of twenty nine essential characters. This study will be useful for breeders, researchers and farmers to identify and choose the restoration and conservation of beneficial genes for crop improvement and also to seek protection under Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmer’s Rights Act.

Keywords: DUS test, Land races, Characterization, PPV & FR Act.
