Abstract

Genetic information with regards to protein content, ash content, 10 ml volume weight, L.A.R., L.A.D., N.A.R. and C.G.R. were worked out in forty two pearl millet diverse populations. The characters were significantly varied. ‘Leaf area’ ratio is reported least difference between g.c.v. and p.c.v. coupled with high haritability and maximum gain up to 54%. This character can be used as selection indices.
