Abstract

An exploration was undertaken in Vindhayachal Hills region of U.P. and M.P. during 11-11-2002 to 18-11-2002. Forty rice accessions, comprising of thirty nine land races of cultivated type and one of wild type (Oryza nivara) were collected. A large variation was observed among land races. Some of the very rare land races such as Thakur Bhog, Lamchoor, Adam Chini, Jalhaur could be collected. Although these land races are at the verge of disappearance. A very popular land race of cultivated rice known as Kesar (highly scented and good quality rice) could not be collected from this region
