Abstract

Two hundred sorghum germplasm lines obtained from ICRISAT, Patancheru, Andhra Pradesh ( India) were evaluated against shootfly, Atherigona soccata Rondani during rabi 1993–94. From this germplasm, 18 lines were selected based on their performance against shootfly. During the next two consecutive years (rabi1994–95 and 1995–96), the selected lines were again evaluated using fish meal technique. The results of the field screening over three years revealed that, the entries viz., IS-2191, IS-4481, IS-4516, IS-17596, IS-18366, IS33714, IS-33717, IS-33722, 1S-33740, IS-33742, IS-33756, IS-33761, IS-33764, IS-33810, IS-33820, IS-33839, IS-33843 and IS-33889 were identified as resistant to shootfly by recording 17.6, 16.9, 12.0, 15.7, 13.8, 18.0, 18.6, 12.7, 10.9, 15.7, 10.7, 10.8, 9.2, 17.1, 9.0, 13.5, 9.9 and 18.7 per cent deadhearts, respectively. These entries were statistically at par with the resistant check, IS-2312 that recorded 13.0 per cent deadhearts due to shootfly. These lines could be utilized in resistant breeding programme to incorporate shootfly resistance
