Abstract:

Study on Genetic Diversity was conducted with 16 chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) genotypes at the field of Vegetable Research Block of V.C.S.G. Uttarakhand University of Horticulture and Forestry, Ranichauri Campus Tehri- Garhwal during Kharif2014. Genetic diversity among 16 chilli genotype was worked out usingD2 statistic. On the basis of genetic distance, these genotypes were grouped into 5 clusters. Cluster I was largest, consisting of nine genotypes followed by cluster II with four genotypes while cluster III, IV and V contained single genotype each. There was no parallelism between genetic diversity and geographical distribution. The maximum inter cluster distance was found between cluster III and cluster V and minimum was found between cluster III and cluster IV. The character ascorbic acid content contributed maximum towards divergence. Considering diversity pattern and other performance of the genotypes UHF-C-13-2, UHF-C-12-4, Kashmiri Long and UHF-C-13-4 from cluster II, genotype UHF-C-12-1 from cluster V, UHF-C-13-6 from cluster IV may be taken into consideration as better parents for an efficient hybridization programme of chilli.
