Abstract

The discovery of stable genetic male-sterility in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millspaugh) and its non- additive genetic variation for yield has paved the way for breeding hybrids. Male-sterile genes have been transferred to promising cultivars to develop male-sterile lines. ICPH 8 the first hybrid pigeonpea was released in 1991. This bulletin describes the advances made in hybrid pigeonpea research and the factors involved in the commercial exploitation of hybrid seed production.
