Abstract:

The experimental material comprised 68 diverse genotypes of finger millet (Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn). The data on 13 quantitative traits were recorded to assess the magnitude of genetic divergence for yield and yield contributing traits. In the present investigation, D2 statistic indicated that the genotypes studied were genetically diverse. Based on genetic distances the 8 genotypes under study were grouped into eight clusters. Cluster I contains highest 60 genotypes, followed by cluster VII (2 genotypes) and cluster III (2 genotypes) while the remaining six clusters were solitary. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster-VIII and III. In overall, D2 analysis suggested genotypes belonging to the distinct cluster (VIII and III) could be used in hybridization programme forenhance the productivity of finger millet.


Keywords: Finger millet, Genetic divergence and D2 statistic.
