The earlier released hybrid GHB 558 and latest released hybrid GHB 732 become susceptible to downy mildew disease. Though recently released hybrid GHB 732 is popular but it is susceptible to lodging because of its thin stem. However, in view of versatility of downy mildew fungi for its changes in virulence, farmer based choice differences in different pearl millet growing area of the state and to diversify the genetic base of cultivated public bred pearl millet hybrids. There is an urgent need and demand for a medium duration kharif hybrid with downy mildew and lodging resistance. The hybrid GHB 1129 has got attractive seed colour, acceptable seed size, appealing ear head, downy mildew resistance and high grain yield potential as compare to check hybrids. Hence, it is recommended for general cultivation during the kharif (medium maturing) and summer seasons as a biofortified hybrid in Gujarat state with high yield and good quality parameter Fe and Zn.
