During the period 2015-2017 on the territory of Maritsa Vegetable Crops Research Institute, Plovdiv it was held a field trial. Five imported rice varieties, introduced into the Bulgarian production, have been tested. A biochemical assessment of grain quality was made. The Turkish variety Gala has the highest crude protein content in the grain, which is also accompanied by high lysine content. The studied Italian varieties (Brio, Linche, Kameo) are characterized by lower crude protein levels in the grain than the standard. With the highest concentration of lysine on average for the period is distinguished the variety Brio – 0,31%.
