Appadurai of Tamil Nadu University, Coimbatore, and S. Appa Rao, M.H. As in the case of maize crosses, low crossabilities of durum wheat and hexaploid triticale with pearl millet can be attributed to the absence of D‐genome chromosomes. In the open pollinated progeny of this triploid, one plant with chromosome numerical mosaicism, chromosome number varying from 2n=28 to 37 of which 23 to 33 normal chromosomes and 3 to 7 telocentrics, was obtained. The cross between pearl millet and elephant grass is easily made (but is sterile unless the chromosome number is artificially doubled) and is widely used as a forage propagated by cuttings. Finger millet has two major cultivated species, Eleusine indica, which is a diploid species contains 2n =2x =18 chromosome number and Eleusine corana and Eleusine africana are tetraploid species, containing 2n = 4x = 36 chromosome number. Hanna (1990, 1991b) has demonstrated that part of the purpureum genome can be usefully transferred to pearl millet. Wide crossing is one of a number of practical methods that can be used to expand genetic variation in common wheat (Triticum aestivum). The expected F 1 chromosome complement was also found in a primary endosperm mitosis. Pearl millet protein is deficient in several essential amino acids but averages 35% higher lysine levels than sorghum (Rooney Development of a Set of Chromosome Foxtail millet (Setaria italica), the second largest cultivated millet crop after pearl millet, is utilized for food and forage globally. We studied the mechanisms underlying selective elimination of the paternal chromosomes during the development of wheat ( Triticum aestivum ) × pearl millet ( Pennisetum glaucum ) hybrid embryos.
