Evaluation of 25 F1 hybrids were involving five CMS lines and five testers in line × tester fashion, data recorded on twelve agronomical characters. The estimation of gca effects for parents indicated that among females, ICP- 2098A was good general combiner for yield and yield attributing traits, whereas in males ICPL-87119 was good general combiner for yield and yield attributing characters. In the crosses viz., ICP-2210A x ICPL-87119 and ICP-2098A x ICPL-87119 were the best specific combinations for seed yield per plant and its attributing character.
