, : Heterosis for grain yield and its components in sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench). Indian Journal of Heredity 10(4): 21-30

Hybrids derived from four crosses between six varieties took less time to flower and mature, produced more whorls per panicle, more primary and secondary branches per panicle, longer branches and more grain and had a heavier 100-grain weight than did the parental types.
