Abstract:

Experimental plot was conducted to the study of genetic diversity of 36 bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) germplasms under the area of Department Genetics and Plant Breeding, C.C.S. University (Campus) Meerut, U.P. during the rabi season 2011-12 was evaluated for genetic diversity for 12 traits i.e., plant height, days of 50% flowering, flag leaf length, flag leaf width, number of tillers per plant, spike length, number of grains per spike, seed vigour index, germination% after harvesting, germination% before harvesting, 1000 grain weight and grains yield per plant. The cluster analysis grouped 36 wheat genotypes into 7 different clusters. 12 genotypes were grouped in cluster II that showed the maximum diversity. On the basis of the data on genetic divergence and mean performance of yield and other traits diverse and superior genotypes namely NWRF-02, UP-2338, NWRF-03, NWRF-09, NWRF-11, NWRF-16, NWRI-06, NWDM-11, NWDM-10 and NWDM-06. Further, on the basis of cluster means, cluster VII has been identified for selecting parents for incorporating flag leaf length, 1000 grain weight, seed vigour index and germination% after harvesting, cluster II for flag leaf width, spike length, number of grains per spike and germination% before harvesting and cluster IV for grain yield per plant and number of tillers per plant.
