Weather and climate greatly influence the agricultural productivity in any region. Agricultural production and productivity of any region is regulated by the prevailing climate of that area through temperature, rainfall, light intensity, radiation, sunshine duration etc. The present experiment was carried to understand the influence of different growing environments and genotypes on heat unit requirement, heat use efficiency (HUE) and radiation use efficiency (RUE) in rice at the Instructional cum research Farm, IGKV, Raipur (C.G.) during Kharif-2013. The experiment was laid out in split plot design with five treatments and each treatment replicated three times. The results revealed that the growing environments greatly affected the total dry matter production. Radiation use efficiency and heat use efficiency both were recorded maximum in crop sown on 15thJune (D1). In terms of genotypes heat use efficiency (HUE) was maximum in Mahamaya and radiation use efficiency (RUE) was maximum in MTU-1010.

Keywords: Rice, Growing environments, Heat use efficiency, Radiation use efficiency.
