Evaluation of advanced generation progenies for resistance to shootfly atherigona soccata in sorghum


Indian Journal of Genetics & Plant Breeding 43(2): 291-293
Evaluation of advanced generation progenies for resistance to shootfly atherigona soccata in sorghum
Advanced generation material was evaluated to estimate the extent of variability, heritability and genetic advance. F3's were more variable and F4's the least, for egg count/plant and dead hearts (%). Back cross F3's were comparatively more resistant. Five (BC) F3 progenies, 1 F3 progeny and 3 F4 progenies were more resistant than the highly resistant parent, IS 5604, suggesting transgressive inheritance of the character. There are 11 (BC) F3's, 2 F3's and 17 F4's superior to commercial variety M 35-1. Broad sense heritability was around 30% indicating greater influence of environment.
