A set of 48 rice genotypes were subjected to Mahalanobis D2 analysis to assess the genetic diversity. All these genotypes were grouped into seven clusters with maximum inter cluster distance between cluster IV and cluster VII (55.28) and minimum inter cluster distance between cluster II and cluster IV (16.14). Among the eleven characters studied 1000 grain weight contributed maximum towards genetic divergence (51.77 per cent) followed by days to 50 per cent flowering (35.55 per cent) and days to maturity (7.89 per cent).

Keywords: Cluster analysis, Genetic diversity, Alpha lattice design.
