Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to study the physical characters such as hundred kernel weight, volume, density, colour, size and chemical composition such as moisture, protein, ash and minerals in different sorghum genotypes. The sorghum genotypes comprised of rabi local, advanced and released and kharif grains. There was significant variation in physical parameters such as hundred grain weight (2.19 to 4.33 g), volume (7.07 to 8.40 ml), density (0.29 to 0.54 g/ml), colour and size. Similarly, chemical composition viz., moisture (4.39 to 9.29 %), protein (10.15 to 16.57 %), ash (1.53 to 9.29 %) and mineral content like iron (4.21 to 18.37 mg/100g) and zinc (0.44 to 1.70 mg/100g) of different sorghum genotypes showed significant variation. Among all the sorghum genotypes, rabi genotypes had showed significant higher values of physico-chemical composition compared to kharif genotypes except protein and zinc.
