Abstract:

Sorghum shoot fly (Atherigona soccata Rond.) one of the major constraints in sorghum production and host plant resistant is one of the component to control to sorghum shoot fly. The present study was carried out with hundred and sixteen Sorghum germplasm lines and four checks one resistant check, one susceptible check and two varietal checks. Observation were recorded on the characters viz., deadheart percentage, trichome density, leaf glossiness, seedling vigour, leaf wetness, Plumule and leaf sheath pigmentation, chlorophyll content, plant height, leaf length, leaf breadth, leaf angle, days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, 100 seed weight and grain yield per plant. The data were collected and analyzed for correlation. The characters leaf glossiness, seedling vigour, leaf wetness and chlorophyll content were significant and positively correlated with deadheart percentage at 28 DAE at both the genotypic and phenotypic levels. Whereas, trichome density (adaxial and abaxial), plant height, leaf length, leaf breadth and grain yield per plant has recorded negative significant association with dead heart percentage at 28 DAE at both genotypic and phenotypic level. While, 100 seed weight has significant but negative correlation with dead heart percentage at 28 DAE at genotypic level only.
