Studies on the inheritance of resistance to shoot fly (Atherigona soccata Rondani) of sorghum\ud

By A S B Jeewad


A study of the inheritance of resistance to shoot fly was conducted at the International Crops Research institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Andhra Pradesh, India in the 1992 rainy and 1992-93\ud post rainy seasons. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with\ud 48 hybrids (developed at ICRlSAT in 1991-92) associated with their parents (12\ud restorer lines and 12 male-sterile lines) and four control cultivars. Interlard and fish\ud meal techniques were used to increase shoot fly population.\ud Data were recorded on shootfly parameters (number of eggs per plant and\ud deadheart percentage) and other related traits [vigour, glossiness, tricholne density,\ud seedling height, yield score and leaf surface wetness (LSW)] and were subjected to\ud statistical analysis according to the line x tester lnodel proposed by Kelnpthorne\ud (1957), to estimate variances, variance components, general combining ability (gca),\ud specific combining abilities (sca), heritabilities and correlation coefficients..
