Abstract:

Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] is a major oil seed crop having 20% oil and 38 to 43% protein which has biological value as meat and fish protein. A field experiment was conducted during Kharif 2013 at Agriculture Research Station (ARS), Kota Agriculture University, Kota (Rajasthan) to study the genetic divergence in 24 soybean genotypes and observations on 9 traits of were recorded. The analysis of variance indicated that significant variation was present among the different genotypes of the soybean for all the traits under study. Genetic divergence assessed using D2 statistics for characters enabled grouping of all the genotypes in five clusters. Cluster III was the largest contained 11 genotypes (46 %) followed by cluster IV which possessed 7 genotypes. The cluster I, V and II possessed 3, 2 and 1 genotypes, respectively. The cluster III exhibited maximum intra-cluster distance (102.34) while maximum inter-cluster distance was noted between cluster II and III (48.93). Cluster analysis grouped the genotypes into two clusters, cluster I and II that were apart at 25 rescaled values.


Keywords: Soybean, Genetic divergence, Analysis of variance, D2 analysis, Cluster analysis, Inter and intra-cluster distance.
