Genetic diversity among sixty three okra genotypes was estimated using Mahalanobis D2 statistic. The genotypes were grouped into nine clusters. The maximum number of genotypes was found in cluster I (36) followed by cluster III (15) and Cluster II (6). Remaining all were solitary clusters with single genotype. The characters viz total phenols (21.35 %), number of leaves at 90 DAS (12.08 %), fruit length (11.73 %) and plant height at 90 DAS (10.60%) contributed more towards genetic divergence. Cluster III with fifteen genotypes showed maximum intra cluster distance (D2= 130.13) followed by cluster II (D2= 82.57) with six genotypes and Cluster I (D2= 66.10) with thirty six genotypes. Maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster VI and cluster VI. Hence, genotypes belonging to these clusters may be utilized for hybridization programme to get better recombinants

Keywords: Okra, Genetic diversity, D2 statistics, Intra and inter cluster distance.
