'VL 149' - a promising and versatile fingermillet variety

Indian Farming 43(1): 20-21
'VL 149' - a promising and versatile fingermillet variety
VL149, developed from a cross between VL204 and IE882, is a tall variety which flowers in 65-67 days and matures synchronously in 100-102 days. In All India trials conducted over 4 years (1987-90), VL149 recorded 16.7% higher grain yield than the early variety PES400 and gave comparable yields with mid-late variety HR374. The highest recorded yield in farm trials was 3.5 t/ha. Stover yield in VL149 (6.4 t/ha) is comparable to that of mid-late or late varieties.
