Abstract:

A trail was conducted with 52 genotypes of roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) at Agricultural Research Station, Amadalavalasa, Srikakulam district for eleven fibre yield and yield contributing characters during kharif 2018-19. All genotypes were gouped into 15 clusters based on D2 analysis. Cluster I comprised of 23 genotypes followed by cluster II with 16 genotypes and cluster III to XV having solitary genotype. Inter cluster distance was highest between the clusters XIV and XV followed by clusters X and XV, clusters XII and XIII and cluster XIII and XV. Cluster XIV recorded high mean values for plant height, base diameter, mid diameter, petiole length, green fresh weight per plant and dry stick weight per plant whereas cluster XV recorded low mean values for most of the fibre contributing traits. Green fresh weight per plant contributed high for the diversity value followed by fibre wood ratio, dry stick weight per plant and base diameter. From the studies it can be suggested that the genotypes belonging to cluster X, XII, XIII and XIV could be selected as parents in future hybridization programmes for developing high yielding cultivars in roselle.
