GENETIC VARIABILITY IN KODOMILLET (PASPALUM SCROBICULATUM L.)

Published on

Twenty six genotypes of kodomillet were used to study the genetic variability for seven
economic attributes. The genotypic coefficient of variation was high for straw yield. Plant
height, basal tillers, panicle length and llJOO.grain weight had higher heritabilityestimates.
Straw yield recorded the highest genetic advance, indicating thatit is controlled byadditive
gene action. Therefore, phenotypic selection on the basis of these traits may be effective
for its yield improvement.
 

Keywords: Kodomillet, variability, heritability, genetic advance.
