Abstract

Nine genotypes of sorghum were screened for their relative susceptibility to zinc deficiency in soil. All the varieties were highly responsive to zinc application, but behaved differently under zinc stress conditions in respect of dry-matter production, zinc concentration and uptake. The varieties, 'JS-263', '29/1', 'JS-20' and 'Son 127 × SL-245' and 'CSH-1' were relatively more susceptible to zinc deficiency than '3677 × 6352', 'Son 3 × SL209', 'CSH-3' and '2077 × 1151'.
