Abstract:

Sixty ashwagandha germplasm and 3 checks were evaluated to study the diversity pattern among the collected accession. The genotypes were grouped into eight clusters. The cluster VII had highest number of genotypes (18) followed by (10) in cluster III. The inter-cluster distance was higher than intra cluster distance indicating wide genetic diversity among the genotypes. The highest intra cluster distance was in cluster-III followed by IV, II and I. The four clusters (V, VI, VII and VIII) contained single genotype each and therefore, their intra-cluster distances were zero. The average inter cluster values were maximum between cluster II and VII followed by cluster VII and VIII showed wider diversity among the groups.
