The present study provides a vivid idea regarding iron, zinc and protein content of 65 diverse rice germplasm in association with yield and yield attributing traits. Experiment was conducted using RBD design (Randomized Block Design) and ANOVA was done for estimation of variation in the population under study. The estimation of heritability and Genetic advance obtained proves that most of the characters are profitable tools for selection in future breeding programs. Correlation coefficient analysis suggests a positive correlation between zinc and iron content indicating that selection of any of the micronutrient content will provide an approximate idea regarding the probable estimate of the other. Path analysis was performed providing valuable input regarding influence of different traits upon yield per plant.
