The field investigation done at the experimental farm of Department of Agricultural Botany, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani, Maharashtra to understand the magnitude of standard heterosis and dal quality parameters in newly developed CGMS (Cytoplasmic Genic male Sterility) based hybrids at International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Patancheru, Hyderabad. Total eighteen hybrids along with three checks (Asha, Maruti and ICPH 2671) were planted in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications during Kharif season. The results of the current investigation indicated that out of eighteen hybrids, seven promising hybrids (ICPH 3381, ICPH 2751, ICPH 2673, ICPH 3341, ICPH 3337, ICPH 3933 and ICPH 3359) were identified on the basis of standard heterosis (46.37%, 45.19%, 44.08%, 43.22%, 42.09%, 37.67% and 30.00% respectively) over the higher grain yield performing check Maruti. Significant variation observed for the dal quality parameters among the hybrids except for protein content.
