Eight characters were studied in seven male-sterile lines, seven maintainers, six restorers and eight hybrids. Genotypic coefficients of variability ranged from 4.10 for numbers of days to maturity to 29.60 for plant height. Genotypic and phenotypic variation in plant and test weight were high. Estimates of heritability were high for plant height, days to 50% flowering and number of days to maturity. Estimated genetic advance was high for plant height, grain yield/plant and test weight
