      <Abstract>An experiment on seed reserve utilization using seven rice genotypes was conducted at the Department of Seed Science and Technology, PJTSAU, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad in Factorial Completely Randomised Design with three replications during the year 2021. Seed reserve utilisation and its associated traits viz., weight of utilized seed reserve (WUSR), seedling dry weight (SLDW), remnant seed dry weight (RSDW), seed reserve utilization efficiency (SRUE) and seed reserve depletion percentage (SRDP) varied significantly among the genotypes, days to emergence and their interaction. While, initial seed dry weight (ISDW) showed significance among genotypes only. With regard to, the interaction between genotypes and days to emergence, significantly high ISDW (23.93 mg/seed), RSDW (530 mg) and SRUE (29.8) and significantly low WUSR (2.10 mg/seed) and SRDP (8.97 %) were recorded in AUS 276 on 6th day, while significantly high WUSR and SLDW were recorded in Dular (11.76 mg/seed) and Moroberekan (206.33 mg) on 14th day, respectively. Significantly low ISDW (9.30 mg/seed) and SLDW (49.67 mg) on 6th day, significantly low RSDW (78.33 mg) and SRUE (14.8) and significantly high SRDP (66.63 %) on 14th day was recorded in RNR 15048. The results explains that WUSR, SLDW and SRDP increased significantly from 6th day to 14th day for all the genotypes indicating the depletion of seed reserves for the growth and development of seedlings and among them, WUSR is most important for conversion into seedling tissue than seed reserve utilization efficiency.</Abstract>
