Abstract:
An experiment was conducted at All India Coordinated Research Project on pearl millet, Mandor during summer 2019-20 in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications under normal and moisture stress conditions. Ten (10) randomly selected genotypes were sown with recommended cultivation practices of the region. The suitability of the genotypes was judged in terms of grain yield, stover yield, drought susceptibility index (DSI), drought tolerance efficiency (DTE), grain reduction percentage (GRP), threshing percentage (TP) and harvest index (HI). The maximum stover yield was recorded by inbred J-2563 (11115 kg/ha) under irrigated condition whereas JMSB-20172 recorded the maximum stover yield (7604 kg/ha) under terminal stress condition. The lowest drought susceptibility index (DSI) was observed in JMSB-20101 (0.38) which indicated better adaptability of the genotype under terminal stress and high temperature condition.
