Present study on thirty six genotypes of fodder bajra [Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.] revealedwide spectrum of variation for various characters. Out of 11 characters studied, green fodder yield per plant has wide difference between GCV and PCV. Grain yield per plant, panicle length, dry matter yield per plant had close proximity between GCV and PCV, high heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean.Therefore, these characters might be under the control of additive gene effects.
