Assessment of drought resistance in pearl millet . I. Factors affecting yields under stress



Assessment of drought resistance in pearl millet . I. Factors affecting yields under stress



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 38(1): 37-48



Yield trials of advanced lines of pearl millet were grown under midseason (panicle initiation to flowering) and terminal (flowering to maturity) drought stresses in the dry seasons of 1981, 1982, and 1983 in Patancheru, India. Grain yield and its components were severely reduced by the terminal stress, but were little affected by the midseason drought, as there was compensation by later tillers for yield lost on the earlier shoots.
