Studies on physico-chemical properties and minerals content from different sorghum genotypes
SD Patekar, Dr. More and SI Hashmi
Physico-chemical characteristics of grains play a very important role in determining the quality of grains. The present investigation was planned to evaluate the three sorghum varieties viz
. M 35-1 (Maldandi), CSV-22R and Parbhani Jyoti for physico-chemical properties and mineral content. Results revealed that highest value of kernel size and bulk density was recorded for Parbhani jyoti (4.05mm) and (0.70 g/ml) respectively. The genotype M35-1 gave a significantly higher level of protein (10.49%) content as well as the presence of lipids dietary fibre, tannins and minerals. The Genotype M35-1 had higher level of phosphorus content (515 mg/100g) while lowest value for phosphorus was found in Parbhani jyoti (371 mg/100g). The genotype Maldandi (M-35-1) recorded higher level of iron content (4.26 mg/100g). The higher value of calcium and magnesium content was found in genotype Parbhani jyoti (27.50mg/100g) and magnesium content (228 mg/100g) respectively. While lowest value for magnesium was found in CSV-22R (213mg/100g).
