Abstract:

A set of 10 lines and three testers of maize were grown under optimal and waterlogging conditions, to study the diversity among them. 13 morphological traits were studied and D2 analysis is done. The genotypes were grouped into four clusters by Tocher’s method based on Mahalanobis Euclidean distance. Genetic diversity based on SSR markers using 25 markers was also studied. 15 SSR markers with PIC value ranging from 0.13 to 0.32 exhibited polymorphism and the genotypes were grouped into two clusters based on Dice similarity coefficients. The molecular study, did not support the morphological diversity, which can be attributed to the insufficient SSR markers used in the study. However, the trueness of the hybrids can be assessed using the SSR markers. From the diversity study, diverse parents from different cluster can be selected for hybridization programme.


Keywords: Morphological diversity, Genetic diversity, SSR markers, Cluster, Mahalanobis distance
