Author(s): A. CHAKRA YORTY AND P. D. GHOSH
Abstract: The characterization and diversity pattern were analyzed among 51 traditional rice cultivars of West Bengal, India. This analysis assess the diversity of the genetic base with respect to agro-morphological features with special reference to 18 quantitative traits like leaf length, leaf width, plant height, flag leaf angle, grain length, grain breadth, grain weight, maturity, number of grains per panicle etc. Qualitative traits were also studied following Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability (DUS) test. Statistical analyses were taken up to explain performance in terms of mean, standard error of mean, genotypic coefficient of variation, phenotypic coefficient of variation, heritability in broad sense, genetic advance. Considerable variability has been found among the traits studied. The study will help in identifying the promising genotypes for rice improvement programme..
