Abstract:

Present study was conducted involving 54 rice hybrids to study standard heterosis expression for yield and some yield components characters viz., days to 50 per cent flowering, days to maturity, plant height, panicle length, productive tillers per plant, filled grains panicle-1, total number of grains panicle-1, spikelet fertility, test weight and grain yield plant-1. Among the heterotic crosses IR-58025A x WGL 3962 and IR-68897A x BPT 5204 showed significant negative standard heterosis for days to 50% flowering, days to maturity and plant height, so that this will be effective for developing short duration, semidwarf rice hybrids and also showed significant positive standard heterosis over KRH-2 for number of filed grains per panicle, total number of grains, test weight and grain yield per plant. So these promising cross combinations could be further used in rice breeding programme for developing high yielding rice hybrids
