This chapter entitled “Rainy season cultivars and hybrid parents” gives a focussed description of improved sweet sorghum varieties/restorers, hybrids and female hybrid parents (as per PPVFRA). The coloured picture of the line is provided for easy identification. The genetic variability for all the metric traits is conspicuous and for some of the qualitative traits like anthocyanin coloration, glume color differences between the lines are not quite revealing. Among the biochemical traits such as sucrose, glucose and fructose the differences are significant among the cultivars
