Abstract:

Five lines and ten testers were crossed in line x tester design to produce 50 cross combinations in order to identify the high yielding and early flowering post rainy sorghum hybrids. Promising hybrids were sorted out based on positive significant standard heterosis for grain yield along with negative significant standard heterosis for days to maturity. Twelve crosses i.e. AKRMS-66-2A(38) x Rb-Local-1-1-sel-1, AKRMS-66-2A(38) x Elangovan-35, AKRMS-66-2A(38) x AKSV-370R, AKRMS-80-1A(39) x Rb-Local-1-1-sel-1, AKRMS-66-2-3A x SLR-136, AKRMS-66-2-3A X Elangovan-35, AKRMS-66-2A(40) x Rb-Local-1-1-sel-1, AKRMS-80-1-1A(62) X Rb-Local-1-1-sel-1, AKRMS-80-1A(39) X  Elangovan-35, AKRMS-80-1A(39) X  PKV-Kranti, AKRMS-66-2-3A X AKSV-370 and AKRMS-66-2-3A X Rb-Local-5(Bold) exhibited positive significant standard heterosis for grain yield along with negative significant standard heterosis for days to maturity. The best cross combination was AKRMS-66-2A (38) x Rb-Local-1-1-sel-1with positive significant standard heterosis of 31.89 % for grain yield per plant along with the negative significant standard heterosis of -6.76 % for days to maturity.
