A5 cytoplasm: way to three way forage pearl millet hybrids

  • Sarabjeet Singh, R. Bhardwaj and R. S. Sohu

Abstract

In the present study, two CMS lines viz., ICMA 03333 and ICMA 01777 based on A5 cytoplasm were used. These A5 lines were crossed with maintainers of different cytoplasmic sources during kharif 2016. The maintainer lines belong to A1, A4 and Violaceum cytoplasmic sources. The 15 F1 hybrids developed from the crosses were found to be fully sterile and could be used as potential seed parents to develop three way forage hybrids.
