The experiment was conducted at the charland area of Jamalpur during rabi 2019 to know the suitable foxtail millet line/verity for water stress and increase production area of char land. Treatments included in the experiment were: ten different lines and one variety (BARI Kaon-1). T1 = RC-170, T2 = BD-869, T3= BD-954, T4= BD-972, T5= BD-998, T6= BD-1062, T7= BD-1075, T8= BD-1083, T9= BD-1086, T10= BD-1108 and T11= BARI Kaon-1. Considering some plant physiological and yield contributing characters such as effective tiller per hill, panicle length, days to harvest, root length, 1000 seed weight and yield all the foxtail millet lines/ varieties may be grown in rainfed condition especially in char land area.
