A short duration high yielding barnyard millet culture ACM 10145 was developed at the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics, Agricultural College and Research Institute, TNAU, Madurai. The culture inflorescence is pyramidal shape, incurved compact raceme and yield on an average 1700 kg/ha and 2500 kg/ha grain under rain-fed and irrigated condition which was 22 % and 17.6 % improved yield over VL 172 and CO (Kv) 2 respectively.. The grains are yellowish grey, oval and bold in size (1.09 mm) with high iron content (16 mg/100g). The white rice recovery of the milled rice and good taste that well suits the consumer’s preferences and acceptance. The culture recorded the quality and average yield of fodder is also better than local check CO (Kv) 2.
