A DataGridViewRow is not a Control, it does not have a BackColor property. Instead of BackColor, you change its color through its style:
_grid.Rows[i].DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue;

Try like this

foreach (GridViewRow gvrow in _grid.Rows)
{
//Assuming you are finding text which in label
Label lbl = (Label)gvrow.FindControl("Label1");
if(lbl!= null)
 {
   string search_text = lbl.Text;
 }

}
