Abstract:

Sixty genotypes of fennel were evaluated to assess the genetic diversity and variability present in fennel genotypes for different agronomic traits. The field experiment was conducted in augmented block design at CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during the Rabi season 2016-2017. Divergence study among the genotypes revealed that sixty genotypes were grouped in VIII clusters. Cluster II having highest number of genotypes followed by cluster VII and V. Based on Euclidean cluster analysis sixty genotypes were grouped into VIII distinct clusters. The distances were significant difference which helps for maximum genetic segregation and genetic recombination for crosses as well as obtaining heterotic response in breeding program for improving yield and yield related traits. Clustering pattern of genotypes was not related to geographical differentiation and it suggests that selection of these traits could be effective in improving yield potential of fennel genotype and selection of diverse parents for purposeful hybridization will lead to the achievement of a breeding goal.


Keywords: Divergence, Cluster analysis, Variation.
