Twenty eight Gora rices of adjoining area of Hazaribag and Glridih dlstrics were studied
In situ for their variabUity pattern In nine agro-morphological characters. Twenty four
varieties formed two distinct groups. Four varieties did not fall In any group. Maximum
variabUity was observed for secondary branches per panicle. Grain shape, size, weight
and fertility were the least variable characters in Gora rices. In upland yarietal
improvement programme, Gora rices like HRC 621(5) could be utilized as donors for
increasing panide length and secondary branches/panicle and HRC 625(9) for red kernel.
Keywords: Variability pattern, morphological character, Gora rices.
