The field experiment was carried out during rabi season 2016-17 at Regional Agricultural Research Station, College of Agriculture, Vijayapur. The experimental material was comprised of 94 diverse rabi sorghum landraces. These landraces of rabi sorghum collected from AICRP on sorghum, Regional Agricultural Research Station, Vijayapur and Farmers, were used for study the grouping of landraces based on seed, seedling and plant morphological traits. The results of the investigation indicated that among the ninety four landraces fifty four were yellow white caryopsis, fifty one were elliptic grain shape, sixty two were non-lustrous grain type and landraces varied with respect to seed length, seed width, seed area. The landraces were also tested for the seed quality parameter and showed high seed germination, short shoot length, medium root length, low seedling vigour index, forty five landraces showed heavy test weight. Sixty four landraces showed medium plant height, all landraces showed late flowering, more number of landraces showed long leaf length, leaf breadth, medium green leaf color, drooping type leaf orientation, thirty eight landraces were symmetric type panicle shape, thirty three were semi loose earhead, sixty one landraces showed short panicle length, fifty four were grayed orange glume color, sixty landraces showed medium glume: length.
