Development of micronutrient enriched staple foods is an important breeding goal in view of the extensive problem of ‘hidden hunger’ caused by micronutrient malnutrition. Iron and zinc are micronutrients essential to the human diet but are in deficient supply to many to many in the Tropics. In an effort to this problem through genetic improvement, field trials of Rice (60 Genotypes) were conducted at Jagtial during kharif 2014 to study the Association and path analysis. No significant correlation was reported between seed yield / plant and its quality parameters including grain dimensions and nutrient traits both at phenotypically and genotypically. These suggested that, there is possibility of selection for these traits without detrimental effect on seed yield/plant. The estimates of direct and indirect effect revealed that L/B ratio had the highest positive direct effect on seed yield / plant followed by Kernel breadth and kernel length and negatively with Grain iron and zinc concentrations.
