To estimate combining ability, twenty seven hybrids were made from 12 parents in a line × tester mating design during Kharif 2015-16 and tested in a Randomized block design with three replications during Kharif 2016-17. Among these parents ICPL 161 and ICPL 149 had desirable GCA effect for grain yield per plant and its contributing characters. Ten crosses exhibited significant positive SCA effect for grain yield. Out of them most promising crosses in terms of grain yield were ICPA 2039 × ICPL 161, ICPA 2156 × ICPL 86022 and ICPA 2039 × ICPL 90048. On the basis of per se performance and combining ability, the parents ICPA 2039, ICPL 88039, ICPL 161 and ICPL 149 can be used for future hybridization programmes.

Keywords: CGMS, Combining ability, Randomized block design.
