  • Abstract Sorghum grain production in sub-Saharan Africa is constrained by the fact that farmers’ choice of improved varieties is limited. Hybrid cultivars have been shown to be more productive for grain than pure line and landrace varieties hence their development can enhance productivity and food security. This study was, therefore, conducted to determine combining ability of 18 sorghum lines, the level of heterosis and cultivar superiority of experimental hybrids in tropical lowland and mid… CONTINUE READING
