Abstract:

Fourty genotypes of fenugreek were grown at College Farm, N. M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari during Rabi 2015-16. Grouping of the genotypes was carried-out by following Tocher's method (Rao, 1952). The D2 analysis indicated presence of ample genetic diversity among the genotypes studied, which were grouped into 6 clusters. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster-VI and V followed by cluster-VI and V. The minimum inter-cluster distance was depicted between cluster-V and IV. The Intra cluster distance is 8.40 (cluster I), while remaining clusters had only one genotype. Therefore, the genotypes belonging to these clusters may be undertaken in a hybridization programme for getting better segregants. The analysis on contribution of various characters towards the expression of genetic divergence indicated that the characters viz., Total oil content, protein content, green biomass per plant, secondary branches per plant, days to 50 % flowering, length of pod and primary branches per plant contributed maximum towards the total genetic divergence. Superior genotypes viz., NFG-33, NFG-28, NFG-38, NFG-14 and NFG-36 can be used in breeding programmes through either pureline or mass selection methods or hybridization for the development of superior fenugreek varieties for commercial cultivation.
