The study is planned to study variability, genetic divergence and characterization of pigeonpea germplasm at NARP, Agricultural Research Station, Navsari Agriculture University, Bharuch. Two genotypes i.e. NP 09-41 and NP-09-46 recorded white colour and the same genotypes are identified as high yielder too. While other genotypes are light, reddish or dark brown in colour These traits can be used for identifying individual germplasm. Ten genotypes were grouped into two major clusters. Five genotypes grouped under Ist cluster and the another five genotypes grouped under IInd cluster. NP-09-46, 43, 49, 47 and 50 falls under first cluster while NP-09-41, 48, 44, 45 and 42 falls under another cluster. Based on per se performance genotype vizNP-09-43, Np-09-41, NP-09-46 and NP-09-49 recorded highest yield per hector and medium duration genotype recorded as NP-09-45 and 47. Hence, it can be considered that high yielding genotypes are grouped under Its cluster while in second cluster medium yielding genotypes are grouped representing high genetic diversity among the germplasm.
