The present investigation was carried out at All India Coordinated Research project on Small Millet, at Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Rewa (MP) during kharif 2017. Estimates of phenotypic coefficient of variation was found higher than their corresponding genotypic coefficient of variation, but for all the characters differences was found non - significant except tillers per plant indicating that the little influence of environment on the expression these characters. The moderate magnitude of phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) along with genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) was recorded for grain yield per plant, number of tillers per plant, harvest index and ear length. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as percent of mean was observed for number of tillers per plant.
