Abstract:

Thirteen new Rabi sorghum genotypes and three checks were evaluated for their physiological characterization under medium and shallow soils during Rabi season viz., 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 in randomized block design with three replications. The grain yield was positively correlated with leaf area, leaf area index, biomass at harvest, HI %, 1000 grain weight, RLWC %, stay green at physiological maturity, while per day production of grain and fodder yield negatively correlated with leaf temperature differences. While considering all physiological parameters on medium soil genotype RSSV 1640 was found significantly superior over the checks. On shallow soil, none of the new genotype was found significantly superior over the check Phule Anuradha.


Keywords: Sorghum genotypes, physiological characteristics, RLWC, SPAD value, Medium soil, Harvest index, Leaf temperature.
