The present investigation is carried out to study the genetic divergence among 108 Ragi genotypes for fifteen different characters using Mahalanobis D2 statistics. The 108 finger millet genotypes were grouped into 7 clusters and 8 clusters under moisture stress free (MSF) and terminal moisture stress (TMS) conditions respectively, irrespective of geographical diversity, indicating no parallelism between geographic and genetic diversity. Under terminal moisture stress (TMS) condition, highest number of genotypes were observed in cluster I (33) followed by cluster III (28), cluster II (21), cluster IV (17), cluster V (8) ,cluster VIII (2) and remaining clusters such as clusters VI, cluster VII were solitary clusters and the highest inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster III and cluster VIII indicating wider range of variability and the genotypes of respective clusters can be utilized for introgressing useful traits for the development of elite cultivars.

Keywords: Moisture stress free condition (MSF), Terminal moisture stress (TMS)
