Abstract

Barnyard millet is cultivated at hills for the production of both grains and fodder.
Genotypic variation for grain and fodder yield was evaluated under single and double
cut treatments over two consecutive years. The results indicated that genotypic selection
of barnyard millet could be practiced on the basis of its performance on both grain and
fodder yield while, selection of genotypes on the basis of grain yield alone might not be
suitable for the promotion of dual purpose cultivars at higher elevation of hills. PRB 9403
found suitable for cultivation at high hills for single and double cut treatment

Keywords

Barnyard millet High altitude Grain yield Fodder yield.
