Abstract:

The present study was conducted to evaluate 38 greengram genotypes to determinethe nature and extent of variation in the phenological traits related to synchronous maturity. A field trial was laid under a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications; observations were recorded on 17 morphological characters. Analysis of variance revealed significant variation among genotypes for all the characters except for 100 seed weight. Different genotypes were found superior for different characters. Phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) was greater than that of Genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) for all characters studied thereby indicating the influence of environmental effect on the characters. The GCV and PCV estimates were high for number of pods per plant followed by degree of indetermination of plant height from first pod maturity to 90% pod maturity and number of branches per plant respectively. High heritability coupled with high genetic advanced as percent of mean was observed for 13 traits including yield per plant. Based on D2 values, the genotypes were grouped into eight clusters. Maximum inter cluster distance was observed between clusters III and cluster VI followed by cluster Vand cluster VIII while lowest distance was noticed between cluster I and cluster VII. Days to 90% pod maturity followed by days to first flowering and days to first pod maturity had highest contribution towards genetic divergence.
