Abstract:

This study was carried out to assess the genetic divergence among 15 cluster bean genotypes using mahalanobis D2. Fifteen genotypes were grouped into four clusters. Maximum (6) genotypes were included in cluster II and minimum (1) in clusters IV. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster II and cluster III (13811.78) followed by cluster II and cluster IV (8357.305) and cluster III and cluster IV (2561.462) showed minimum inter cluster distance. The percent contribution towards genetic diversity was maximum in pod yield per plant (g) contributed to 45% followed by pods/ plant (22.00%). On the basis of inter- cluster distances and per se performances observed, the genotypes with specific characters can be utilized for hybridization programme.
