Abstract:

Generally plant breeders select the parents on the basis of phenotypic divergence, but for effective breeding, the knowledge of genetic diversity among the parents with respect to the characters which are to be improved is essential. The present investigation entitled, “Genetic Divergence Studies in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)” has been carried out. The genotypes under study fall into seven clusters. The cluster III was with the highest number of genotypes (11) followed by cluster II (10), clusters V (09), cluster VI (06) and IV and VII had one genotype. The maximum inter cluster distance (D =309.50) was observed between cluster VII and cluster V, while the minimum inter cluster distance (D = 41.46) was observed between clusters IV and II. Considering all the characters, it was suggested that the genotypes in clusters VII and cluster V are suitable for further breeding programme.
