Abstract: Field Experiment was conducted to evaluate 33 rice Hybrids for yield and quality traits in Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, SHUATS, Allahabad during Kharif 2016 in Randomized Block Design with 3 replications of 33 Rice Hybrids received from AICRIP from Indian Institute of Rice Research (IIRR) Hyderabad. The data were recorded for 15 quantitative characters to asses’ Genetic variability. Analysis of variance showed highly significant for all the 15 characters except flag leaf width. The highest grain yield per plant was observed in hybrid IHRT-E-34 7t/ha. Highest of GCV and PCV were observed for number of spikelets per panicle followed by grain yield per plant and unfilled grains percentage. High Estimate of Heritability was observed for plant height and days to 50% flowering. High Genetic advance as % of mean was recorded for number of spikelets per panicle, grain yield per plant, unfilled grains and tillers per hill. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of mean was observed for spikelets per panicle followed by plant height and tillers per hill. With regards to hulling percentage and high Gel consistency recorded in IHRT-E-9 follows by IHRT-E-12.
