Rice production is at the increase throughout the world. There are few research about varietal differences for seedling vigour and field establishment of upland rice, this study was conducted in a randomized complete block design in four replications. Seven varieties of upland rice were used, seed vigour tests, Accelerated ageing tests, Conductivity test, Standard germination tests, field emergence test and conductivity test, were carried out. Analysis of variance showed significant difference among the Varieties, the correlation result indicated that accelerated ageing test is the best indicator that predicting field emergence. Regression analysis showed the traits that are best quantify for seedling vigour and field establishment.
