The present research investigation comprised of 50 germplasm lines of pearl millet genotypes (comprising of designated B and Rlines) were carried out at Regional Research Station, Bawal, CCS Haryana AgriculturalUniversity, Hisar, Haryana during Kharif 2020. High estimates of GCV, PCV, heritability and high genetic advance as per cent of meanwere recorded for panicle length,panicle diameter, productive tillers (no/plant), 1000-seedweight, dry fodder yield per plant and grain yield per plant implyingthat these traits were predominantly under control of additive gene action and geneticimprovement can be achieved through simple selection. The combined analysis of correlation coefficient analysis and path coefficient analysis revealed that the traits, mainly, dry fodder yield, plant height and 1000-seedweight (gm) were the major yield attributing traits and hence; emphasis should be given to this traits while programming any plant breeding programme.
Key words: Pearl millet, GCV, PCV, heritability, genetic advance, correlation
