Abstract:

Barnyard millet is a multipurpose crop grown in Uttarakhand hills for food and fodder uses. The present study was carried out during three consecutive seasons i.e. Kharif- 2017, Kharif- 2018 and Kharif- 2019, in which seven advance breeding lines and three check varieties viz., PRJ 1 (local check), VL 207 (zonal check) and DHBM 99-3 (national check), selected from core set of barnyard millet germplasm maintained under ICAR- All India Coordinated Research Project on Small Millets at College of Forestry, Ranichauri, Uttarakhand, were taken for their evaluation with respect to yield, yield contributing traits and against grain smut disease at high hills of Uttarakhand. Wide range of variation was recorded for yield and yield contributing traits among studied lines. Out of all ten lines including check varieties, two lines (URJ-4 and PRJ 1©) were identified as high yielding, early maturing as well as grain smut resistant lines. It is, therefore, concluded that these two lines are of immense value for plant breeders in further crop improvement programme for developing grain smut resistant barnyard millet high yielding variety (s).
