Abstract:

For improving the yield potential of varieties and hybrids the decision should be made about the choice of right type of parents for hybridization. The present study was taken up at the Instructional Farm UBKV, Pundibari, Coochbehar, West Bengal during 2015-2016 for 8 characters of brinjal landraces. The 26 brinjal genotypes were grouped into eleven clusters based on D2 values. Cluster I and V were comprises maximum 4 genotypes. All other Cluster had digenotypic except Cluster XI was monogenotypic. The inter cluster distances were higher than the average intra cluster distances, which indicated wide genetic diversity among the genotypes of different groups than those of same cluster. On the basis of the cluster means the important cluster was cluster IV for fruit circumstances, average fruit weight, marketable yield plot-1 and total yield plot-1. The result of cluster mean clearly indicated that genotypes like UBB-8, Suphal-2 green (Malda) and Black Beauty could be selected as parents for future hybridization programme. The genotypes from the cluster I, IV and IV could be selected for hybridization programme to produce highly heterotic genotypes as these were found to be most divergent with a number of desirable traits.
