Stability of quality characters in scented rice
Central Rice Research Institute, Cuttack - 753 006, India.
Twenty nine scented rice genotypes including one non scented check Ratna were evaluated for their stability parameters with respect to quality characters during four successive seasons (rabi 2003, kharif 2003, rabi 2004, kharif 2004). Significant genotype x environment interactions were observed for all the quality characters studied. Both linear and non linear components of GXE interaction were also significant for all the characters studied. Varieties Kasturi, Basmatibahar, CR-689-424, CR-689-425, Pusa basmati-1 possessed stability in general over seasons in most of the component quality characters.
