Abstract:
The present study comprises of forty-four genotypes of little millet out of which twenty seven genotypes collected from local area of Konkan region while remaining seventeen genotypes were collected from zonal agriculture research station Kolhapur. These genotypes were cultivated in a Randomized Block Design with two replications at Education and Research Farm, Department of Agricultural Botany, College of Agriculture, Dapoli during the Kharif 2021. As a result of the current investigation, it is clear that a wide range of variability exists for various traits, along with high heritability and high genetic advance as percentage of the mean for significant yield traits. Days to maturity, thousand seed weight, protein content, calcium content had a positive direct effect on grain yield. Therefore, these features might be used in direct selection in order to increase little millet's grain output. Path coefficient analysis shown that, the characters viz., days to maturity, thousand seed weight, protein content, calcium content and straw yield per plant had positive direct effect on grain yield.
