Abstract:

Studies were carried out to assess the genetic divergence among 14 ridge gourd genotypes using mahalanobis D2. For genetic divergence fourteen varieties were grouped into four clusters. Maximum varieties (7) were included in cluster IV and minimum (1) in cluster I. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between cluster II and cluster IV (8506.65) followed by cluster II and III (4428.51) and cluster I and cluster III (1659.88) showed minimum inter cluster distance. The varieties with specific characters can be utilized for hybridization programme.


Keywords: Divergence, Ridge gourd, Inter and intra cluster distance, Cluster mean, Mahalonobis D2
