Abstract

The present investigation was carried out to study the magnitude of heterosis in yield and its component traits of 20 rice hybrids developed by crossing five lines with 4 testers in a line x tester mating design at Agricultural Research Station, Nellore, AP. Mid parent and heterobeltiosis ranged from 1.82 to 89.14% over mid parent and -6.7 to 80.67% over better parent respectively. The hybrids viz., BPT 5204 x NLR 34449 followed by BPT 5204 x IR 36, BPT 5204 x IR 64, and WGL 48684 x IR 36 recorded highly significant positive heterosis for the trait grain yield over mid parent and better parent and these hybrids could be identified as best for exploiting the heterosis.
