PHENOTYPIC STABILITY IN FOXTAIL MILLET (SETARIA ITALICA L.)

Published on

Thirty genotypes of foxtail millet were tested in four different environments. The results
were analysed on the basis of stability parameters for days to flowering, maturity and plant
height. Highly significant mean squares were observed for genotypes, genotype x
environment and environment (linear). CZS-5 and SN-6 were the most stable genotypes
with respect to flowering, SN-27 was highly stable for maturity, and SIC-9 for plant height.
It indicates that there is no correlation among these parameters.  

Keywords: Foxtail millet, Setaria italica, phenotypic stability.
