  • Brief descriptions are given of these pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum) parental lines, with ICMB89111 (PI599191) being the maintainer line of ICMA89111 (PI599192). ICMB89111 was developed by crossing 843B (BKM2068) with a high-tillering inbred line resistant to downy mildew (Sclerospora graminicola) derived from a cross between a Gero New Strain and an S3 progeny from Saria Synthetic, both from western Africa.The male-sterile line, ICMA89111, derives its A1 cytoplasm from ICMA1
