ANALYSIS OF BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS AT BOOT STAGE IN RICE (ORYZA SATIVA L.)

Published on

Correlation analysis was carried out in seven genotypes of rice for five biochemical
parameters, namely, chlorophyll content, soluble protein content, mitochondrial ATPase,
succinic dehydrogenase and peroxidase activity at boot stage and grain yield per plant at
maturity. Soluble protein content and mitochondrial ATPase had highly significant
genotypic correlations (0.74 and 0.51) and significant phenotypic correlations (0.65 and 0.50)
with grain yield per plant. It is concluded that these two biochemical parameters can be
used to predict the performance of rice genotypes at boot stage.
