PI: Dr R B Ghorade,

A. Donor parents identified

Based on the various research reports available for grain zinc and iron content, some of the promising sorghum genotypes were short listed (PVK 801, ICSR-113, ICSR-135, ICSR-40, ICSR-34, ICSR-196, ICSR-72-2, ICSR-69, ICSR-28, ICSR-14001, ICSR-72, ICSR-72-1). These genotypes can act as donor parents for improving the grain iron and zinc content in the elite cultivars. In addition some IS lines were also found to possess high iron and zinc content.

B. Advancement of segregating material involving high iron/zinc donor parents

During Kharif season of 2017, F2 seed of following 14 crosses were planted and advanced to F3 generation. In the F2 generation, individual plant selections (IPS) have been made on the basis of superior performance for grain yield, grain quality parameters (particularly grain lustre, grain size), earliness and other associated economic traits. About 380 individual plant selections were made in F2 generation. The material will be advanced to successive generation during the forth coming kharif season.
