A mapping population of 104 F3 lines of pearl millet, derived from a cross between two inbred lines H 77/833-2 × PRLT 2/89-33, was evaluated, as testcrosses on a common tester, for traits determining grain and stover yield in seven different field trials, distributed over 3 years and two seasons. The total genetic variation was partitioned into effects due to season (S), genotype (G), genotype × season interaction (G × S), and genotype × environment-within-season interaction [G × E(S)].
