 mm The present investigation was executed with the thirty-two genotypes of four groups including two checks (Arka Nidhi, and Mukta Keshi). On the basis, of multivariate analysis using Mahalanobis’ D2-statistic employing ten quantitative characters viz. yield components and fruit yield could be grouped into 6 clusters. Cluster VI had the highest number of genotypes followed by clusters V, IV, and I. The intra-cluster D2 values ranged from 32.76 (cluster II) to 106.45 (cluster V). The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between clusters I to cluster VI (483.21) suggested that genotypes of these clusters are genetically very diverse to each other. The crosses between selected genotypes from widely separated clusters are most likely to give desirable recombinants/hybrids in the future breeding program of brinjal.

Keywords: Manalanobis D2 statistics’ and divergence in brinjal (Solanum melongena L.)
