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

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.

The cultivated and sexually compatible species Pennisetum purpureum (elephant grass, 2n = 4x = 28) and Pennisetum glaucum ( pearl millet, 2n = 2x = 14) can undergo hybridization which favors the amplification of their genetic background and the in...

A descriptive key of seed size, shape, colour and germ area width was produced for reliable identification. However, seed...
