FORMULATION OF SELECTION INDICES IN FINGER MILLET (ELEUSINE CORACANA GAERTN.)

Published on

Nonsignificant association and low heritability for grain yield in two intervarietal crosses
of finger millet suggested that the selection based on grain yield in early generations is not
advantageous. Selection indices formulated in F3 populations including plant height and
number of productive tillers in the cross HR-911 x Indaf-9; ear weight, straw weight and
harvest Index in the cross Indaf-8 x HR-41·2 were the best indices for indirect selection for
grain yield.
 

Keywords: Selection Indices, relative efficiency, finger millet.
