Abstract
The grain amaranths, which originated in Incan Andes and Guatamala (Sauer, 1950), belong to the Amaranthaceae family which has at least 60 known species. They are ubiquitously distributed across the tropical world either as a Ip'ain ill Central South America and SOUthern . Asiatic countries, or as a vegetable crop in Central and South America, Southern Asia and Africa (Hauptli et aI., 1979). Among the presently cultivated grain types are Amaranthus caudaIUs, A. cruenlUs and A. hypochondriacus. The grain amaranths are classified as outcrossing (Simmonds, 1979). A recent study by Jain et al. (1982) indicated that grain amaranths have an average outcrossing rate of 30%.
