Abstract:

The experiment was conducted with 40 hybrids which were developed through line x tester mating design using four male sterile lines and ten newly developed in breads as male parents, their forty crosses and two standard hybrid check Aadishakti and Mahashakti. The parents, hybrids and two standard checks were evaluated during KHARIF, 2019 season for nine characters. Significant differences were observed for all the nine characters studied. Among the females, DHLB-27A was found best general combiner for grain yield and had significant GCA effects for five other characters. None of the female parent were good combiner for earliness. Among male parents, S-19/18, S-19/20 and S-19/23 were found to be good general combiner for most of the characters under study. The cross DHLB-27A x S-19/18 was the best specific combiner for grain yield per plant followed by DHLB-27A x S-19/20 and DHLB 27A x S-19/23. They produced significant and desirable SCA effects for most of the traits studied, including potential for exploiting hybrid vigour in breeding programme.
