Abstract

The rice culture KJT-2-2-44-10 is a midlate duration, dwarf stature, high yielding, medium slender grain rice culture. The culture evolved from the cross between Kasturi/ IR 50 through pedigree method of selection at Regional Agril. Research Station, Karjat. The variety exhibited 17.90, 17.16, and 18.50 per cent higher yield over the checks in station, state and adaptive trials, respectively. It showed excellent milling (71.69%), head rice recovery (63.71 %), intermediate Amylose content (23.52) and ASV (4.0) with translucent grains and excellent cooking qualities. It has been observed moderately resistant to neck blast, bacterial blight and resistant to leaf blast. Also it has shown resistance to BPH and WBPH and moderately resistant stem borer with an average yield of 4.5 to 5.0 t/ha. Therefore the rice culture KJT-2-2-44-10 will be release for Konkan and Vidharbha region of Maharashtra state.
