Abstract:

The study of physico-chemical properties of grains is a basic step in any research and it is important to maintain end product quality and to determine consumer acceptability. Evaluation of nutritional values of different sorghum genotypes help sorghum breeders for improvement of varieties based on nutritional aspects. The present study was undertaken to compare physico-chemical properties of twenty sorghum landraces with high yielding variety (M35-1). The physical properties viz., 100 kernel weight, density, colour values, of most of the traditional sorghum landraces were significantly higher compared to M35-1. The functional properties of landraces were on par with M35-1. In proximate composition moisture, fat and carbohydrate content of landraces were on par with M35-1. The crude protein and crude fiber content were significantly higher and the ash content of most of the landraces was significantly lower compared to M35-1.
