Abstract

Twenty six derived lines (named as AKENT number) along with resistant line (IS 18551), two susceptible lines (AKMS-14 B, DJ-6514) of kharif sorghum were evaluated for yield and yield components. Correlation studies revealed that the character grain yield per plant showed positive and significant association with days to 50 per cent flowering, plant height, 1000 seed weight and fodder yield. Thus for the development of high yielding varieties in sorghum, days to 50 per cent flowering, plant height, 1000 seed weight and fodder yield per plant should be considered during selection.
