The present investigation was conducted with 87 germplasm accessions of barnyard millet along with two checks (VL181 and PRJ-1). The data was recorded for 13 morphological and 10 yield attributing traits. All accessions were observed to have erect growth habit and one-sided spikelet arrangement with complete absence of lower raceme branching. Majority of germplasm entries exhibit presence of culm branching and concave grain shape. Most of the accessions exhibit pyramidical inflorescence of greencolour and compact panicle having grey or light grey grain, thick lower raceme and absence of lodging. Intermediate, phenotype was exhibited by germplasms with respect to presence or absence of pigmentation at internodes and leaf sheath, and straight or curved lower raceme shape. A wide range of mean values were exhibited by the accessions for all the characters.High PCV and GCV was recorded for lower raceme length and peduncle length along with high heritability and high genetic advance as per cent of mean, indicating predominance of additive effects in expression of these traits and high efficiency of phenotypic selection for these characters.
