Abstract: Some indigenous rice genotypes of different ecosystem have high yielding potentiality {Deb, 2000). Inspite of this, infonnation proper evaluation of indigenous genotypes of different ecosystem is not adequate. Cultivation of indigenous genotypes are decreasing day by day due to ingress of high yielding varieties and non-availability of good quality indigenous rice seeds. Acknowledging this opinion, the present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the potential of eight indigenous low land rice genotypes in New Alluvial Zone, Gontra, Nadia, West Bengal during kharifseasons of2004 and 2005. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design (RBD) by single planting method. From this evaluation highest plant height, panicle length, effective tiEler numbers were found in Langalmuthi, Laljhulur, Chamannani, respectively and highest grain yield obtained from Chamannani. Test weight was found in great difference, highest in Katrani (32.9g) and lowest in Masuri (16.34g).
