Abstract:

The fourteen genotypes selected were grown during Kharif-2014 at in order to evaluate the performance of fourteen elite accessions of rice for yield and its component traits. The present experiment was laid under randomized complete block design with three replications at field under aerobic rice/biotechnology rice research laboratory, Department of Plant Biotechnology, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK campus, Bangalore, India during Kharif-2014. Analysis of variance for all morphological traits shown that mean sum of squares due to genotypes was highly significant for all characters. Among all genotypes grain yield per plant as well as panicle length was found to be maximum for AM-1 variety. Also high iron content of brown rice was found in BR-2655 while Moroberekkan variety showed minimum polishing loss of iron. Meanwhile Moroberekkan variety had maximum zinc content for both brown and white rice which proves it’s suitability as bio fortified consumption grain.
