Analysis of diversity among cytoplasmic male sterile sources and their utilization in developing F-1 hybrids in Pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (R.) Br]

Analysis of diversity among cytoplasmic male sterile sources and their utilization in developing F-1 hybrids in Pearl millet [Pennisetum glaucum (R.) Br]

Indian Journal of Genetics and Plant Breeding 69(4): 352-360

The present study aims at analysis of diversity among parental lines of different cytoplasmic sources and their utilization in developing F-1 hybrids. Seven male sterile cytoplasmic lines belonging to A(1) 3; A(4) - 2 and A(5) - 2 were crossed with three elite restorers. The cluster analysis done with molecular data obtained from genomic DNA using SSR markers grouped the parental lines belonging to A(1) cytoplasm into one cluster, A(4) into one and A(5) into the other. The assessment of the performance of the F-1 hybrids was done through standard heterosis, heterobeltiosis and economic heterosis. The study clearly indicated that all the seven cytoplasmic male sterile lines coming from different cytoplasmic sources are capable of producing new superior hybrids. Physiological characters like chlorophyll, relative carotenoids and root length density have also been studied to assess the performance of parents and F-1 hybrids. Higher economic heterosis was observed for yield in A(1) cytoplasm compared to A(4) and A(5) cytoplasms. Desirable effects of earliness and maturity can be obtained using A(4) cytoplasm while desirable heterosis could be obtained for plant height, spike girth, number of nodes, chlorophyll content, relative carotenoids and 1000 grain weight from A(5) cytoplasm.
