Abstract:

The present study was conducted for evaluation of 40 foxtail millet germplasm accessions for nutritional traits protein and carbohydrate content and its correlation with grain yield. The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design with three replications at National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources, Regional Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during Kharif, 2015. Average protein content recorded was 10.68 % with a range of 7.66 for accession IS-663 t 13.49 % for KP/SC-1484, while mean values ranged from 56.20% to 79. 90 % with a general mean of 67.54%, KP/SC-1505 accession has recorded highest carbohydrate content while ISE-1511 recorded the lowest. Both the traits negatively correlated with the grain yield.
