Abstract

Aim. To determine the inheritance of the millet morphological traits: seed color, size, anthocyan coloring of its parts, raсе specifi ed resistance to smut and genetic linkage relationships between these features, which are a reliable basis for the breeding of a new generation of varieties. Methods. Genetic analysis of the F1, F2 and F3 hybrids. Results. The interrelations between the seed size, its color and shape, and especially raсе specifi ed resistance to smut have been determined. Conclusions. The degree of linkage between the loci of genes that control the expression of the relevant characteristics in experimental combinations interbreeding has been stated.
