Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate rice ( Oryza sativa L.) genotypes during kharif (wet season) of 2000,2001 and 2002, under natural saline soils having E.C. in the range of 5 to 8 ds/m and pH 7.8. Seven rice genotypes viz., IET 15420, IET 13428, IET 16887, IET13422, IET16885, IET11353 and IET 16172 were evaluated along with four checks CSR-27 (inland saline), CST 7-1 (coastal saline), CSR - 13 (alkaline) and MTU 2067 and BPT-5204 as local yield checks. Among the varieties screened, IET 15420 and IET11353 recorded significantly superior yields than the better check CST 7-1 and local check MTU 2067 and cultivation of these varieties in saline soils of Andhra Pradesh will help the farmers of the region to cultivate rice crop with higher economic returns
