Morphological characterization of aromatic short grain rices of eastern Uttar Pradesh
Author(s): SP Giri, Alok Pandey and DK Verma
Abstract: Twenty two local land races of eastern Pradesh were agro morphologically characterized using IRRI Descriptors for rice Oryza Sativa L. during kharif 2015. Wide range of variation was recorded for Leaf blade Pubescence, Flag leaf angle, Ligule colour, Panicle type, Lemma and Palea Colour & Lemma and Palea Pubescence. Leaf blade Pubescence was varied from glabrous to intermediate among the tested genotypes. It was found glabrous in 11 genotypes and intermediate in 6 genotypes while it was pubescent in 3 genotypes. Variation was also observed for Flag leaf angle. It was found erect in 17 genotypes, and intermediate in 3 genotypes. Leaf auricles were present in all twenty five genotypes. It was recorded light green in colour in all the tested genotypes. Awn was found only in two genotypes Lemma and Palea colour also varied with genotypes. On the basis of morphological characterization it was concluded that these varieties possess distinct and distinguishable morphological characteristics can be registered for their protection under the PPV&FR Act, 2001.
