EVALUATION OF HIGH YIELDING GENOTYPES OF FINGER MILLET (ELEUCINE CORACANA) UNDER RAINFED CONDITIONShambhu Saran Kumar and Amresh Chandra Pandey
An experiment was conducted during rainy season of 2007-2008 for the evaluation of high yielding genotypes of finger millet under rainfed condition in district East Singhbhum of Jharkhand. Eight genotypes of finger millet recorded substantial variability in growth and yield attributes. The plant height, tillers/ plant, main ear length, finger per ear, thousand grain weight, straw yield were observed higher in genotypes GPU-67. These attributes reflected significant higher seed yield in GPU-67 and has performed better than rest other genotypes. The net return and benefit cost ratio were also recorded maximum under genotypes GPU-67, which confirms the superiority of it among the all eight genotypes evaluated through the present experiment.
