This chapter entitled “Post-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. However, some of the qualitative traits like anthocyanin coloration, glume color the differences between the lines are indistinct or trivial. Among the biochemical traits such as sucrose, glucose and fructose, the differences are noteworthy among the cultivars. The poor productivity of tropical sorghums during post-rainy season is attributed to photo-thermo sensitivity
