Abstract:

Thirty blast resistant lines of finger millet were evaluated in a field study to assess the magnitude of genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for yield and quality attributing traits. The analysis of variance revealed that there were significant differences among the entries for all the traits studied. The genetic parameters revealed that moderate to high variability coupled with high heritability and high genetic advance as per cent of mean for agronomic traits viz., days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, fingers per ear head, finger width, test weight, productive tillers per plant and quality traits like calcium content, iron content, zinc content, protein content and anti-oxidant activity suggesting the predominance of additive type of gene action in controlling these traits and improvement of these characters is possible through simple selection.
