Abstract :Growth and yield of two F_1 hybrids along with their parents were studied. F_1 hybrids produced a higher grain yield per plant than the respective mid-parents in both F_1 cross-combinations. Average heterosis value for yield was 1.14. Higher yield in the F_1 plants was mainly due to the higher number of spikelets per panicle. Dry matter accumulation in the F_1 hybrids was higher than that of the mid-parents in both hybrid combinations and it was associated with a higher number of tillers and larger leaf area. Post anthesis decline in leaf area at the ripening stage was faster in the F_1 hybrids compared with the inbred parent cultivars. The F_1 plants showed a higher apparent translocation than the inbred parent cultivars in both F_1 cross-combinations.
