FURTHER STUDIES IN BREEDING HYBRID SORGHUMS

Published on

DEVELOPMENT of commercial hybrids has provided the most important tool
in improving yields of crop plants substantially. Utilizing the source of
cytoplasmic-genetic male sterility from Combine Kafir 60 (msCK 60), it has
been possible to develop and release the first sorghum hybrid for general
cultivation in the early and some of the medium duration
kharif tracts and the
irrigated summer areas of India (Rao and House, 1966); further studies in this
direction are presented in this paper.
