Abstract:

Genetic divergence of thirty genotypes of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) was assessed under normal and limited moisture conditions using Mahalanobis's D2 statistics (Mahalanobis, 1936). It was revealed that thirty genotypes were grouped into seven clusters in both the environments. Under normal condition spike length, membrane stability index, relative water content and test weight contributed maximum towards total genetic divergence. Under limited moisture condition membrane stability index number of effective tillers per plant and biological yield per plant contributed maximum towards total genetic divergence. It is suggested that crossing between genotypes of clusters II and IV for normal environment and clusters II and III for limited moisture condition might provide good chance for transgressive segregates in the segregating generations and may end in some promising genotypes.


Keywords: Genetic divergence, Hordeum vulgare, Mahalanobis's D2 statistics.
