Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted with fifty pearl millet genotypes raised in a randomized block design with two replications at D block Research Farm, Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, AC &RI, Killikulam to study the green fodder yield and its related traits. High magnitude of variation in the experimental material of this study was reflected by high values of mean and range for almost all the 12 characters. The results indicated that the genotypes IP11840, IP15257, IP11839, IP15322, IP20347, IP15341, IP10437 and IP17428 were the best identified genotypes for green fodder yield coupled with tallness, increased number of tillers per plant, more leaf length, more number of leaves per plant, more stem girth and internode length, more LAI, more leaf stem ratio which indicated that these genotypes can be selected as parents in pearl millet improvement programme for the development of elite varieties/hybrids. The traits plant height, number of tillers per plant, leaf length, leaf area index, number of leaves per plant, stem girth, internode length, dry fodder yield and green fodder yield exhibited high GCV and PCV. It showed more amount of genetic variations present between. Hence, selection towards these components will lead to development of dual purpose pearl millet varieties/hybrids.
