Genetic variability studies in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) Mutants

VU Rathod, HV Kalpande and PS Rathod
Fifty one mutant lines were evaluated along with six checks i.e. Parbhani Moti, CSV-22R, P.S. Moti, PKV Kranti, CSV-29R and M-35-1in Rabi Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench)” was carried out at Department of Agricultural Botany, V.N.M.K.V., Parbhani during rabi 2019-20. These genotypes were grown in Randomized Block Design with 2 replications to study genetic variability among various genotypes. Analysis of variance showed significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits indicated wide range of variability among genotypes for yield and yield contributing characters and ample scope of improvement by selection. High estimates of genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variation were recorded for fodder yield per plant, plant height, Zn content, grain yield per plant, panicle weight. The characters fodder yield per plant, panicle weight, days to physiological maturity, Zn content, grain yield per plant, plant height and number of primaries per panicle expressed high estimate of heritability accompanied with moderate to high genetic advance.
