Abstract

In pearl millet hairy lamina, hairy sheath and hairy stem were inherited as monofactorial recessives while hairy leaf margin and hairy node were inherited as monogenic dominant traits. The gene for hairy lamina hl showed independent assortment from the gene for hairy node, Hn, and showed linkage with the genes hst (hairy stem), hs (hairy sheath) and Hm (hairy leaf margin). Furthermore, Hl was observed to have an epistatic effect on the expression of hs. The percentages of recombination between the gene pairs hl-hst, hl-hs and hl-Hm were 0.0, 8.30±0.44 and 19.81±0.98 respectively. Thus the genes hl-hst-hs Hm form one linkage group.
