Fifty diverse genotypes of sorghum were evaluated for different metric traits to assess the genetic diversity during kharif  2018-19 for yield and its associating traits. Less difference between the estimates of GCV and PCV implying the minimal influence of environmental agencies and importantly, improvement through selection seems feasible. The coefficients of variation (GCV and PCV) for panicle length without peduncle, 100-grain weight, green fodder production, crude protein yield, and other variables were found to be high. Whereas, low genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) and phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) were recorded for traits, crude protein, height up to flag leaf, plant height, stem diameter, stem diameter and time of panicle emergence. Leaf breadth, panicle length without peduncle, dry matter%, 100-grain weight, green and dry fodder yield, HCN and tannin content, crude protein all had high heritability and genetic advance.
