Abstract

Registration of SGIRL-MR-3 and SGIRL-MR-4 midge resistant sorghum germplasms.

Abstract

These 2 germplasm lines are resistant to Contarinia sorghicola. They were selected from a cross between the resistant accessions TAM2566 and PI383856 (♂). SGIRL-MR3 is a brown-seeded restorer and SGIRL-MR4 a white-seeded maintainer for A1 male-sterile cytoplasm. Data on morphological and agronomic characters are tabulated.
