The mode of inheritance, variability and heritability of protein content in the F2 generation hybrids obtained by crossing of cultivated white and red grain rice genotypes (Oryza sativa L.) were investigated in this paper. In the majority of the investigated combinations the inheritance is intermediar and in some of the combinations dominant and partially dominant and partially dominant inheritance appears. The variability is relatively low and ranges from 2,35 - 3,58 % in the parents and from 2,75 - 11,61% in the F2 generation hybrids. The inheritance of the protein content in the investigated combinations is almost equally determined by the genetic and environmental variance. The combination red - grain genotype N3 x ranka has the highest heritability (56,58%). This combination is the most promising for the selection of high protein genotypes.
