It is well known that in general hybrids are more vigorous than conventional varieties. This means they are more able to compensate in the field under difficult growing conditions. 25% yield advantage has been reported with hybrids. A hybrid crop is a result of two different varieties of plants, are cross-pollinated to create an off-spring or hybrid that contains the best traits of each of the parents. In hybridization, pollination is carefully controlled to ensure that the right plants are crossed to achieve the desired combination of characteristics, such as bigger size or better disease resistance. The process of developing a hybrid typically requires many years. In general, hybrids offer some combination of these favourable traits: dependability, less required care, early maturity, higher yield, improved flavour, specific plant size, and/or better disease resistance. So, it is the need of the time to shift towards hybrids to feed the increasing population of the Nation and for
