Anther culture technique offers great opportunities to accelerate breeding progress. The current study aimed to develop some good doubled haploid lines (DH) through anther culture technique and to evaluate them along with their five parents including two check varieties for yield and yield related traits. Analysis of variance revealed that varietal differences were signified and wide variability present among the genotypes with respect to all the characteristics studied. Correlation analysis revealed that grain yield was highly positive correlated with panicle length. The information on the inter association among the yield attributing characters showed the nature and extent of relationship with each other. Consequently, this will help in the improvement of different characters along with yield in breeding programmes.
