The present study was conducted on 25 sorghum genotypes grown in Randomized Block Design during Kharif 2015 to evaluate, categorize and classify them for fodder yield and quality traits. Observations were recorded on eighteen variables involving morphological, quality. Wide range of variation, high coefficient of variation, were recorded for number of leaves per plant, green fodder yield, dry fodder yield and DDM, therefore it revealed the possibility of their further improvement. The mean squares due to genotypes were recorded highly significant for all the 18 characters studied. This indicated the presence of considerable genotypic variation in material among genotypes for further selection and improvement.

Keywords: Sorghum, Morphological and quality traits, Analysis of variance, Mean
