Abstract:
The study was aimed at evaluating the performance of five Basmati rice varieties tasted at the Agronomic Farm, Gomal University, Dera Ismail Khan, during 1997. Variety Basmati-385 out yielded rest of the varieties by yielding 3.98 t ha–1 of paddy with maximum normal kernels (77.82%) and lowest sterility (33.28%). It was followed by Basmati-370 on all the parameters studied. Varity C-6129 was highest in straw yield and 1000-seed weight. Variety Basmati-198 didn’t perform well having statistically the lowest score in most of the recorded characters. Amongst these varieties, the productivity and adoption of Basmati-super 385 was remarkable. Although it was also praiseworthy for physicochemical properties yet it was superceeded by Basmati-super on account of slight differences. On the basis of these results, Basmati-385 is recommended for promising yield and Basmati-super for the quality attributes.
