AICRP- Pear millet, JAU, CCS-HAU, SKNAU, MPKV, IARI (6)

Objectives:

 

  • Development of pearl millet genotype for high Zinc and Iron through conventional breeding and identification of genomic regions associated with enhanced micronutrients through mapping and association mapping.
  • Development of value added products for ready to cook and multi grain mixture suitable for mid-day meal scheme

Common study across the partners

(CRP Biofortification Parental Line Trial (CRPB PLT) Kharif 2017): The trial was successfully conducted across 6 locations viz., Mandor, Jamnagar, New Delhi, Dhule, Jaipur and Hisar in zone A and B during kharif 2017. The trial comprises 16 entries including two checks with high Fe and Zn contributed by different ICAR-AICRP on Pearl millet centers and ICRISAT. The performance of experimental entries along with two checks viz. ICMB 98222  and Dhanshakti for  days to flowering, plant height, panicle per plant, agronomic scores and Fe and Zn content (Table 1). High Fe content (84-118 ppm) were recorded in entry no. 3, 5, 4, 10, 8, 1 and high Zn content (57-84 ppm) were recorded in entry no. 3, 1, 5, 8, 1 and  4 in comparison to the best check Dhanshakti (Fe 83 and  Zn 55ppm).
