Forty four genotypes of forage oat were evaluated during Rabi 2018-19 in a RBD designs with three replications. The observations were recorded on yield and yield contributing traits viz., days to 50 % flowering, plant height (cm), number of leaves /tiller, number of internodes / tiller, leaf length (cm), leaf breadth (cm), stem girth (cm), L/S ratio, dry matter content , crude protein content and green forage yield (kg/net plot). The D2 statistics showed that there was adequate diversity among the genotypes. The D2 values, forty four genotypes were grouped into six clusters. Genotypes of the same geographic origin were classified under different clusters, indicating that the grouping pattern did not show a significant relationship between genetic diversity and geographical diversity. Plant height contributed maximum for divergence followed by days to 50 % flowering leaf length leaf: stem ratio green forage yield and leaf width. On the basis of per se performance, inter cluster distance and cluster mean the genotypes viz., RO-19, RO-11-1, OS-6, HFO-611, OS-432, UPO-16-4, JO-05-7 and JO-10-501 could be used for future breeding programme
