The experiment was carried out at the Department of Biochemistry of Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Narendra Nagar (Kumarganj), Faizabad as a part of Ph.D. work. The seven varieties of hybrid rice namely- Dhani, US-312, 6201, 6302, 6444, JK-401, PHB-71 and 3 check varieties namely-Swarna, Sambhamah and Pusa Basmati were purchased from local market at Kumarganj, Faizabad from year 2012 to- 14. The results indicated that, the hybrid rice variety 6444 was recorded highly superior over Pusa Basmati and Sambhamah with highest germination (96.5%) followed by (95.5%) in PHB-71.The variety Dhani of hybrid rice was found as short bold type and PHB-71 short slender. The all check varieties observed as long slender type and rest found medium. The kernel length was recorded maximum in Pusa Basmati (7.90 mm) followed by Sambhamah (7.41 mm) and 6444 (6.86 mm) and found significantly superior among all the varieties and highly superior over 6302.The kernel breadth was found maximum in PHB-71 (2.16 mm) followed by Swarna (2.14mm), JK-401 and Dhani (2.13 mm) was significantly superior among all the varieties and highly superior over 6302. The L/B ratio was recorded highest in Pusa Basmati (4.40) followed by 6444 (3.81) and found highly superior over JK-401. The test weight was recorded maximum in Pusa Basmati (24.61 g) followed by 6444 (23.86 g) and was significantly superior among all the varieties and highly superior over US-312 and 6302.
