Abstract: Job’s tears (Coix lacryma-jobi Linn.) is an underutilized crop widely distributed in South-East Asia. The seeds of this crop are used as pseudocereal, poultry feed and beer brewing; while leaves are used as fodder. The North-eastern India is considered as one of the major centres of diversity for the crop. There are four well-marked forms of Job’s tears met within India, which differ in their shape, size, colour and degree of hardiness of the involucres. Till 2004, NBPGR Regional Station, Shillong, Meghalaya has collected a total of 54 accessions of Job’s tears germplasm. The germplasm characterization and protein and phosphorus contents of 29 accessions have been presented in this paper. Potentiality for systematic large scale cultivation of genotypes has also been emphasized.
