Abstract:

The present investigation conducted to screen sorghum 100 mutants along with 7 checks of sorghum for resistance against sorghum shoot fly (Atherigona soccata Rondani) in augmented block design at Agriculture research station Hagari, during late kharif 2019 under natural infestation condition. The screening results revealed that 5 mutant lines IS925-21(10%), IS925-124(7.69%), IS925-125(8.69%), PV-21(5%) and PV-51(9.09%) were highly resistant compared to resistant check IS-2312 (12.5%). These mutant lines exhibit comparatively lower number of eggs per plant and minimum dead heart formation. These lines can be used for further conformation and can be used in future tolerance breeding programs.
