Abstract: The genetic and phenotypic variation for yield and yield components was evaluated in 20 rice genotypes grown in Nadia, West Bengal, India, during the boro season of 2010. High estimates of genetic and phenotypic coefficients of variation were recorded for grain yield per plant, number of grains per panicle, number of effective tillers per plant, plant height and 100-grain weight. The number of effective tillers per plant, number of grains per panicle, 1000-grain weight, length of rough rice, breadth of brown kernel, and length/breadth of brown kernel were found to be the most important characters to be considered in the selection of high-yielding rice cultivars.
