Abstract:

Forty two genotypes of pearl millet were evaluated in randomized block design for twenty two physiological, nutritional and yield related traits to estimate genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance as a percentage of mean. The analysis of variance revealed significant variability for all the 22 yield, physiological and nutritional traits. Among the 22 characters studied, the genetic advance as percent of mean along with higher values of heritability, GCV and PCV estimates were maximum for grain yield plot-1, green fodder yield plot-1, iron content, leaf area duration, green fodder yield plant-1 and zinc content indicating that the genetic variances for these traits are probably owing to their high additive gene effects.
