HETEROSIS IN INTERSPECIFIC HYBRIDS OF FODDER SORGHUM

Published on

Heterosis was significantly positive for green fodder yield in the main fodder crop as well
as ratoon crop in five out of 30 hybrids of interspecific crosses involving Sorghum bicolor
and S. halepense. The study revealed good scope for commercial exploitation of heterosis
for green fodder yield in sorghum as in the bajra-napier hybrids.
 

Keywords: Heterosis, interspecific hybrids, fodder sorghum.
