Sorghum shoot fly (Atherigona soccata) is an important pest of sorghum and host plant (HPR) is one of the important features for minimizing losses. Resistance against shoot fly in sorghum with governed by the physical and chemical contribute. Eleven sorghum genotypes were evaluated under the field condition for their reaction to shoot fly at Agronomy field, college of agriculture Kolhapur in Rabi 2016-17. Field studies showed that the genotypes viz. IS 2312, IS 2215 and IS 18551 were promising to shoot fly resistance, on the basis of morpho-physiological traits such as plant height, leaf glossiness, trichome density, leaf surface wetness and biochemical traits such as moisture content, soluble proteins, total sugars, total chlorophyll content. While genotypes DJ 6514 and Amruta were estimated as susceptible checks.

Keywords: Sorghum shoot fly, Atherigona soccata (Rondani), Host plant resistance (HPR).
