Breeding for superior rice (Oryza sativa L.) genotypes having high yield potential coupled with desirable quality attributes should be the strategy for a successful breeding programme. The current investigation therefore evaluated the physico-chemical characters and cooking quality of 56 high yielding rice varieties from different eco-geographical areas viz., Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka.


Key words

Rice, physico-chemical characters, cooking quality, amylase content, alkali spreading value.
