The identification of a new source of genetic male sterility in pigeonpea is reported. This source differs from that reported by Reddy et al, (1977), and oytological examination indicates that the abnormal anther development involves degeneration of the pollen mother cells at the young tetrad stage. This form of male sterility has been recovered in phenological classes ranging from 52 to 80 days to flower for December sowings at 27 S. The character is being maintained in ten phenological groups. This new source of genetic male sterility mil widen the genetic base for hybrid production in pigeonpea.
