These are deep soil (DS) (> 1m depth), shallow soil (SS) « 45 cm depth) and irrigated (IR) conditions representing 5.2 m.ha area. The major factors of adaptation to post rainy season are resistance to moisture stress due to receding moisture conditions, resistance to biotic stresses such as shootfly and charcoal rot. The specific cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) and restorer lines evolved with the above mentioned parameters were used to develop hybrids for different growing conditions. The performance of such hybrids is presented here.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
