Abstract:

A total of 75 sorghum germplasm lines including 74 Indigenous cultivar (IC) and one Exotic cultivar (EC) were characterized using 27 morphological descriptors provided by PPV & FRA for DUS testing in sorghum. Results revealed that maximum variation was present among genotypes for glume traits viz., colour (6 groups), neck of panicle (5 groups), length for flower with pedicel (5 groups), time of panicle emergence (4 groups), colour of dry anther (4 groups), panicle length of branches (4 groups), panicle shape (4 groups) and caryopsis colour (4 groups). Classification of genotypes on the basis of DUS traits provided identification of key characteristics of various genotypes.
