Abstract

A diallel set of 11 pearl millet genotypes was made to evaluate General Combining Ability (GCA) effects of parents and Specific Combining Ability (SCA) effects of cross combinations. The analysis of variance of diallel progenies exhibited significant genotypic differences. Different analyses, i.e., combining ability analysis and genetic component analysis, showed that both additive and non additive gene effect were significant. Four parents had negative GCA estimates. Crosses with low SCA effects were also identified and their further use in breeding programme has been suggested.
