Abstract:

The preset investigation was consisted of evaluation of 92 finger millet accessions for qualitative morphological descriptors at Pantnagar Centre for Plant Genetic Resource, G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar. Observations were recorded for sixteen qualitative characters on visual basis at different stages of development, as per DUS guidelines standardized by PPV&FR. Out of 92 accessions, most of the accessions exhibited erect growth (50 %), droopy ears (27.14%), dark green glume (58.70 %), non-pigmented leaf juncture (67.30 %), non-pubescent leaf sheath (33.69 %), non-culm stem branching (67.39 %) and lodging susceptibility (55.44 %). Majority of germplasm entries exhibited non-branched fingers (88.40 %) with multiple whorls (91.30 %), among branched fingers predominance (63.04 %) was for in thumb position. Seeds of majority of genotypes had enclosed glume cover (58.69 %), brown color (55.43 %), round shape (42.39 %), rough surface (52.17 %), un-persistent pericarp (76.08 %) with shattering nature (60.87 %).
