ABSTRACT

The present research was conducted at the farmer’s field of Pabna during Aman season 2020-21 to investigate the growth and yield performance of rice mutants. The experiment was arranged in a randomized complete block design consisting of two rice mutants (viz. Kas-80-C-1, RM-16-N-8, BINA dhan-17 and BRRI dhan-87) as treatment and replicated thrice. All the growth, yield attributes and yield were substantially influence among the rice mutants except the phenological parameters. Results of the experiment showed that the highest plant height in BRRI dhan-87 (134.33 cm) and BINA dhan-17 was found better in respect of maximum seed yield (6.5 ton/ha). Therefore, findings of this study suggested that BINA dhan-17 would be suitable for better productivity and recommended for cultivation at Pabna region in Bangladesh.

Key words: Yield, rice, mutants.
