Genetic analysis for physiological traits in pearl millet



Genetic analysis for physiological traits in pearl millet



Crop Improvement 18(2): 132-134



A triple test cross analysis of 18 inbred lines of pearl millet was performed for physiological traits such as peduncle length (PL), flag leaf length (FLL), flat leaf width (FLW), internode number (IN) and internode length (IL). The results revealed that epistasis was predominant for PL, FLL, and FLW. The (i) type of epistasis was prevalent for PL and FLL, while J and L type of Epistasis was prevalent for PL, FLL, and FLW. The additive (D) component was predominant for PL, FLW and IN, whereas dominance (H) component was more important for FLL and IL.
