The study investigated some physicochemical and cooking properties of rice cultivars grown in different agroecological zones of Nigeria. The popular cultivars were identified and sourced from the mills and from the open markets in the following State capitals. These were: Zabamari and Dikwa from Borno northeast(NEB), Supi and Sudi, Kano northwest(NWK), Okai and Ikwo southeast, Abia(SEA), Igbemo and Ofada, southwest, Ekiti and Ogun respectively(SWE, SWO), and Mars and Sipi, southsouth, Cross River(SSC).
