Abstract

Fifty pearl millet [ Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R.Br.] diverse genotypes were analysed to estimate correlation among seed yield per plant and its ten component characters. The seed yield per plant had significant and positive correlation with number of effective tillers per plant (0.643, 0.534) and harvest index (0.563, 0.554) at both genotypic and phenotypic levels.
