Abstract

Thane is one of the major and tribal district of Maharashtra. Tribals of northern part of Thane district have conserved 28 land races of rice on farm by traditional methods of cultivation. Efforts are made to screen these 28 cultivars of rice for their yield characteristics and nutritional values. Findings of this work include scented, long grain, short and bold grain, high protein, high carbohydrate and high lysine content cultivars of the rice. The importance of conservation of such rich rice diversity from this fast changing agro-ecosystem of Thane district is discussed. Both in situ and ex situ conservation steps are necessary to conserve these cultivars of rice crop.
