Evaluation of Exotic and Local Cultivars of Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L) for Yield, Maturity and Nonsenescence Associated Characters under Rainfed Conditions.

Abdul Shakoor

Abstract:
The average performance of the exotic and local cultivars of sorghum over two locations for various characters alongwith their analysis of variance reveal that the exotic line from ICRISAT ICSV 107 was the best among the exotic lines for being highest in yield, number of seeds per head, head length and threshing percentage, while ICSV 219 was the best line having more number of leaves, more leaf area of the upper six leaves per plant and sugar content. Among the local pure lines, Pot.3-9 was superior in plant height, 1000-grain weight, threshing percentage and earliest in maturity. The overall results show that the nonsenescing (ICRISAT) types generally took 10-12 days longer to reach 50 percent flowering and averaged 45-56 cm shorter in height than the senescing types. The nonsenescing lines had significantly more number of leaves, LAUSL, percent GLA 50DAF and sugar percentage from flowering through harvest.
