STRENGTH
Excellent collection of diverse CMS and restorer lines having the following traits:
Earliness
Compact long head
Downy mildew (DM) resistance
Thin stem with high number of tillers
High head volume
Diverse grain type
 
GENETIC ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME TO DEVELOP:
DM resistant CMS (A/B) lines
DM resistant restorer (R) lines
Breeding lines with more tiller and superior grain quality
Lines with rust resistance and drought tolerance
   
BREEDING OBJECTIVES :
Development of hybrids having
Early to medium duration, tall plant type with compact heads for low input, rainfed growing condition
Medium to long duration tall plant type with compact heads for high management conditions
Medium –duration , heat tolerance for high – input condition
Resistance to all the major race of downy mildew
High fodder yield with more number of tillers and thin stem
Medium to bold size grains for specific market requirement
