Abstract

Thirty four diverse genotypes of proso millet (Pailicum miliaceum L.) were planted in randomized block design with three replications at two locations in Udaipur, India. Maximum direct effect was recorded for main panicle len9th followed by main panide weight and 1000-seed weight. These characters contributed towards seed yield/plant directly as well as indirectly. Hence these characters could be effectively used in breeding programme for improving seed yield in proso millet.
