Diallel method was use to study quantitative characters of rice. The output of the analysis will provide genetic information to select further generation. The results were Grain Protein Content (GPC) and filled grain characters in rice determined by epistatic gene effect. Over dominant had been show in day of harvest while that in plant height was partially dominant, and in panicles length were partially dominant and close to complete dominant.
