Genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance studies in the land races of kharif sorghum for seed quality parameters (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench)
Author(s): RC Patil, VV Kalpande and MD Awate
Abstract: Fifty-five landraces of kharif sorghum were evaluated for six seed quality parameters. The study revealed that the characters electrical conductivity and threshed grain mold rating showed high GCV and PCV values indicating thereby large amount of variation in these characters. All the characters showed close GCV and PCV values indicating less influence of environment of these characters. The high heritability estimates were observed for all the characters indicating that these characters would respond positively to selection. The high values of expected genetic advance over mean were recorded for the characters like electrical conductivity, threshed grain mold rating and vigour index. The electrical conductivity and threshed grain mold rating exhibited high heritability along with high value of expected genetic advance per cent over mean which indicated the importance of these traits for selection. High values of heritability along with low value of expected genetic advance were observed for the characters like seed hardness, germination percentage of seed and specific gravity of seed and heterosis breeding can be fruitfully exploited improving these characters.
