Identification of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) hybrids and parents: modified grow-out test

Indian Journal of Environment and Toxicology 6(2): 92-94

Identification of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) hybrids and parents: modified grow-out test

Traditional characterization of adult plant phenotype using the grow-out test is considered a reliable technique in varietal identification. The grow-out test is, however, a long, tedious and expensive procedure, hence the present study is an attempt to modify the grow-out test. For each of five hybrids, 400 seed lots were contaminated with 0, 5, 10 and 15% of male and female seeds.
