Krishnadevaraya (SiA 2593) - a new foxtail millet variety for Andhra Pradesh, India

The Setaria italica SiA2593 was developed from the progeny of the cross SiA326 x SiA242. In multilocational trials in India during 1986-91, SiA2593 produced 16% higher grain yield (mean yield 1.49 compared to 1.28 t/ha) and 7% higher straw yield (mean yield 3.47 compared to 3.25 t/ha) than SiA326, the control cultivar. The straw of SiA2593 is of better quality and is more palatable to cattle because of its thin stems.
