Correlation and Path Analysis for Yield and Yield Contributing Traits in Forage Sorghum

The experiment with 32 genotypes was conducted at the sorghum research unit, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola in randomized block design with three replications during kharif, 2011-2012. The studied revealed that the magnitudes of genotypic correlation coefficients were greater than phenotypic correlation coefficients for most of the character under studied.

Genetic Variability, Heritability and Genetic Advance for Seed Quality Parameters in some of the Land Races of Sorghum

Ninety-nine landraces of kharif sorghum were evaluated for six seed quality characters. The study revealed that the characters grain mold rating and seed hardness 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.
