Abstract:

In the present study, 25 genotypes were chosen from the list of 149 genotypes of foxtail millet based on their diversity, superiority for various traits, and were assessed for varietal differences for grain protein (%) and micronutrients (Zn, Fe, Ca) contents. The range of values for grain nutrients content among the selected genotypes are recorded for protein (6.2-10.89%), zinc content (2.29-11.4 mg/100g), iron content (0.33 to 16.26 mg/100g) and calcium content (1.99 to 22.69 mg/100g). Among the 25 selected genotypes, the two agronomically superior lines viz., GS 78 and GS 71 were found to be nutritionally superior in terms of grain nutrients content (protein and micronutrients). The genotype GS 78 was found superior for grain protein (%), zinc, iron and calcium content, and GS 71 for grain protein (%), zinc and calcium content hence could be utilized in value addition. The genotypes recorded with high protein, iron, zinc and Calcium content may be further utilized in breeding for these nutritional traits.
