Hundred germplasm lines and five checks of Sorghum {Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench} were evaluated in augmented design. High estimates of PCV, GCV, heritability and G.A. were observed for days to maturity, ear head width, grain yield/plant and plant height. Path analysis for grain yield indicated highest direct effects of ear head length and plant height on grain yield. Genotypes AHM 57, IS 3937, IS 2937, K-2 and IS 3911 were identified as good combiners for grain yield and other desirable characters.
