Abstract:
Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)’s production and productivity is by far lower than its potential. Knowledge on the extent and pattern of genetic variability is prerequisite important for generating superior varieties of different objectives for sorghum improvement. Therefore, this research was conducted to quantify genetic variability, heritability, and genetic advance as percent of mean in colored pericarp sorghum for yield and yield contributing as well as moisture stress tolerating traits. In present study, analysis of variance shows that there is considerable difference between the genotypes for all the traits. The result of genetic parameters revealed that moderate to high PCV, GCV, high heritability accompanied with high genetic advance was recorded for the traits viz., leaf area index, fodder yield and grain yield suggesting that the selection would be efficient for these characters to bring genetic enhancement in desired way.
