Abstract

Sweet Sorghum which is similar to grain sorghum but with sugar rich stalks, is a new generation bioenergy crop, gaining importance as a raw material for ethanol production, and having multiple use. The present investigation was carried out to study heterosis and combining ability for stalk sugar yield traits in the B and R lines. A total of 49 crosses derived by using 14 parental lines in a Line x Tester (7 x 7) mating design were evaluated at two locations viz., RARS, Bijapur and ICRISAT, Patancheru during kharif (rainy season) 2013 for stalk sugar yield traits, grain yield and yield components. The female parents (lines) used were IS 13871, IS 22670, ICSV 25333, ICSV 93046, NTJ 2, Wray and SPSSV 30, and the male parents (testers) used were PMS 90B, ICSB 323, ICSB 351, ICSB 374, ICSB 480, Parbhani Moti and NSSV 13...
