F1 and F2 diallel analyses were used in field-plot studies at Parbhani, India, in 1979 on the inheritance of resistance to Atherigona soccata Rond. and related characters in sorghum lines. Data were obtained for 3 characters, namely the percentage of dead hearts, the number of eggs per plant and percentage plant recovery. The first character was controlled by additive gene action, while the other 2 were controlled mainly by additive gene action but also by a certain degree of non-additive action. The heritability for resistance appeared to be about 23-25%
