  • Till date only one sweet sorghum hybrid CSH 22SS has been released for general cultivation in India and the current levels of new hybrids are unable to surpass this hybrid. The objective of this study was to assess the general and specific combining abilities of eight parents and 16 hybrids respectively at three semi arid locations by following a line × tester mating design. Significant differences among environments, testers, environments × testers and environments × line × tester effects were… CONTINUE READING
