  • Profile picture of Charles Hash who took this action.

    Charles Hash commented on "Comments":

    Pearl millet is also among the host heat-tolerance cereals, with week-old seedlings of some genotypes able to survive soil temperatures of 46 C at a depth of 0.5 cm below the soil surface (Peacock et al. 1993. Experimental Agriculture), and other genotypes able to produce viable pollen and functional stigmas, as well as set and fill grain even when daily maximum temperatures exceed 42 C and daily minimum temperatures exceed 35 C during the critical growth stages of pollen mother-cell development when the panicle has just full filled (but not yet begun to emerge from) the flag-leaf sheath. It also has exceedingly robust pollen that can be carried on the dry winds of the Sahel in sub-Saharan Africa, or the Thar Desert margins in Pakistan and India for several kilometers in dry weather and still effect fertilization if it lands on a receptinve pearl millet stigma. This robust pollen makes achievement of effect spatial and temporal isolation of Nucleus Seed, Breeder Seed, Foundation Seed and Certified Seed plots quite challenging, and means that essentially all landrace germplasm of this species is a moving target, with its genetic composition changing every seed generation.
