Hybrid vigor in forage yields of crosses between pearl millet inbreds and their mutants



Hybrid vigor in forage yields of crosses between pearl millet inbreds and their mutants



Crop Science 20(6): 744-747



One hundred and two induced recessive mutants in the Pennisetum americanum inbred lines Tift 13 (T13), Tift 18 (T18), Tift 23 (T23), and Tift (T239) and plants of T13, T18 and T23 into which two dominant mutations were transferred with four back crosses, were crossed with normal plants and these F1 hybrids were compared with their normal parents in forage yield trials in the field from 1973 to 1978.
