Abstract

The results on the field evaluation of restorer lines of sorghum over three years (rabi 1993–94 to 1995–96) revealed that, among 28 lines tested in one set, thirteen of them (ICSR-170, SPV-1156, M 148–138, SPV-1173, IS-33742, A-I, SPV-462, IS-33859, SPV-570, SPV-489, KSV-18R, IS-33843 and 5-4-1 (Muguti) were found to be promising against shootfly. While in another set of 27 lines, fifteen entries (IS-18366, IS-12611, SPV-655, SPV-1155, Afzalpur local, SPV-839, IS-4657, IS-33751, DRC-1000, BRJ-17, Selection-3, DRV-20, IS-188758, M 35-1 and 5-4-1 (Muguti)) were found to be promising against shootfly in rabi season. These entries were statistically at par with the resistant check, IS-2312. These resistant restorer lines could be utilized in shootfly resistance breeding programme.
