We describe ICRISAT's experience to date in using these methods in pearl mi11et (Pennisetum glaucum (L.) R. Br.). We are attempting to improve terminal drought tolerance of elite inbred pollinator H 77/833-2 using donor PRLT 2/89-33, and elite inbred seed parent maintainer line ICMB841 using donor 863B. The advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives are discussed.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
