The present investigation involved the assessment of heterosis for grain yield and yield attributing traits in rabi sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench.) hybrids by line x tester analysis. Parental material (three females and five males) was planted to undertake crossing programme following line x tester mating design and the seeds of fifteen hybrids were obtained. The experiment on line x tester was confined to fifteen hybrids with eight parents i.e. three female and five males and one check
