Drought stress is one of the major abiotic stresses that limits rice productivity in the world. In this study 83 diverse rice genotypes were evaluated under reproductive-stage drought stress and non-stress conditions in a completely randomized design with three replications. Eleven well known stress tolerance and susceptibility indices were calculated based on the grain yield under stress and non-stress conditions. Also rank mean (RM) indices were calculated based on the ranks of genotypes for the former calculated indices. The highest seed yield under non-stress condition belonged to the genotypes Sangjo, Zenith, IR70445-146-3-3, Norin 22 and Ghasroldashti. Under stress condition, however, IR83750-131-1, IR74718-24-2-3, Sepidrood, TETEP and IR71739-24-3-5 genotypes showed the highest seed yield. STI, GMP, MRP and REI indices with positive and significant correlations with grain yield in stress and non-stress conditions were found to be the most suitable indices for selection of drought tolerant rice genotypes. According to these indices, IR83750-131-1, Sangjo, Sepidrood, Zenith and IR58 genotypes showed the highest ranks and had a higher tolerance to drought stress. Based on RM index, IR83750-131-1, IR74718-24-2-3, Sepidrod, TETEP and IR74720-13-1-2 obtained the highest ranks. Cluster analysis grouped the most drought tolerant genotypes in the second cluster.
