Abstract:

Five lines and ten testers were crossed in line x tester design to produce 50 cross combinations and were evaluated along with the check for grain yield and its components for combining ability analysis. The study revealed that out of the fifty hybrids, thirteen hybrids revealed positive significant SCA effects along with positive significant standard heterosis for grain yield per plant. Hybrid AKRMS-80-1A (39) x PKV-Kranti recorded the highest positive significant SCA effects (25.93**) along with positive significant standard heterosis (19.72**) for grain yield/plant. All these crosses need to be evaluated on large scale multilocation and multiseason trials to find out the most stable cross combination for higher grain yield in rabi sorghum.
