Abstract:

For the assessment of the Genetic diversity among 80 germplasm of Garlic, an experiment was conducted at main experimental station, Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Faizabad (U.P.) by using 12 morphological traits. Divergence analysis grouped tested genotypes in the nine distinct non-over lapping clusters. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster VII and III (39.852), these two clusters were genetically diverse to each other. However, the minimum inter-cluster D2 value was recorded in case of cluster I and cluster II, as these two clusters were genetically not diverse to each other. Cluster VII was most important because 03 genotypes in this cluster having the most important diverse characters, because it showed maximum mean values. These clusters could be useful in heterosis breeding to achieve more genetic gain. The percent contribution was found highest for plant height followed by length of leaf, number of cloves per bulb, and total soluble solids for total divergence among the available genotypes of garlic. The current study concluded that on the basis of phenotypic characters, genotypes were highly diverse, which could be exploited for future heterosis breeding program and useful for selection of better recombinant.
