Abstract:

Onion is important vegetable crop which has got highest demand for export purpose as well as for internal consumption. Being highly cross pollinated crop we can observe lot of variation in the genetic component of onion crop. Analysis of genetic diversity helps to choose the better genotype for particular purpose and we can improve that character through breeding programme. In this regard an experiment was conducted to study the “Diversity of Onion Genotypes” at the site of All India Co –ordinated Network Research Project on Onion and Garlic Main Agriculture Research Station UAS, Dharwad. The results revealed that fifty six genotypes were distributed in six clusters, there is a moderate to high diversity was present in these genotypes. The genotypes GKD-3, Bhima Shakti, Bhima Dark Red, GKD-42, Arka Kalyan, Bhima Super, RGP-1, GKD -75 these genotypes present in the cluster II, III, IV, V, and VI and lines L-883, Pune Red, L-863, DOGR-344, L-355, Bhima Kiran, PRO-7, RGP-2, RGP-3, present in the cluster I exhibited moderate diversity and having good storage and resistance to disease and pest hence these genotypes can be further utilized in the breeding programme for further improvement.
