Abstract:
Drought is one of the major environmental stresses resulting in a huge reduction in crop growth and biomass production. Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum L.) has excellent drought tolerance, and it could be used as a model plant to study drought resistance. Efforts has been made for identification of suitable hybrids for drought tolerance in pearl millet using different stress induces viz.:, Yield reduction, Mean productivity index, Relative efficiency index, Mean relative performance, Drought resistance index, Golden mean, and Drought tolerance efficiency. hybrids ICMA 98222 × 481-500, ICMA 88004 × 501-510, ICMA 93333 × 551-560, ICMA 30199 × 481-500, ICMA 30200 × 561-570, ICMA 88004 × 551-560, ICMA 97444 × 571-580, ICMA 30209 × 571-580, ICMA 04999 × 571-580 and ICMA 30199 × 551-560 were identified as the most drought tolerant hybrids.
