Abstract:

The present experiment entitled Genetic divergence analysis in Grass pea (Lathyrus sativus L.) was conducted during Rabi 2016-18 at the Agricultural Farm of Palli Siksha Bhavana (Institute of Agriculture), Visva-Bharati, Sriniketan. The Experimental study was conducted with 21 genotypes. The quantitative assessment of genetic divergence was made by adopting Mahalonobish D2 statistic for yield and its contributing characters. Grouping of genotypes into different clusters was done by following Tocher’s method. Studies on genetic divergence revealed that 21 genotypes are arranged in 4 clusters. Cluster I contains 18 number of genotypes. Cluster II, III, IV contains each one genotype. Highest inter cluster distance observed in the Cluster II and Cluster IV and highest intra cluster distance was observed in Cluster I.
