Abstract:

Pearl millet is a cross pollinated crop and 5th most important crop after rice, wheat, maize and sorghum. It is dual purpose crop which is mainly grown for food and fodder. It is well adopted to adverse environmental conditions. The experiment was conducted at Bajra Research Area, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding during Kharif, 2017 and at Bajra Research Area, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding and Dryland section of Department of Agronomy, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during Kharif, 2018. Data were recorded for yield and yield related traits and then pooled analysis was done. Genetic divergence analysis was done using the method given by Mahalanobis, 1936 with sixty germplasm lines. Seven major clusters were formed in which cluster 1 and cluster 2 were largest with 20 and 19 germplasm lines. A maximum difference among the germplasm lines within the same cluster was shown by cluster 7 (5.98).Cluster 1 and cluster 7 showed maximum inter-cluster distance of 8.21, followed by that between cluster 1 and cluster 4 (7.94).The crosses between the genotypes belonging to distantly located clusters are likely to produce good transgressive segregants.
