Abstract

A study of genetic diversity in 40 genotypes of chilli for various characters revealed substantial differences for all the characters. The accessions were grouped into 7 clusters with Cluster-I comprising of 17 genotypes followed by Cluster IV (11) and Cluster III (8). The maximum intercluster distance (D=104.98) was observed between Cluster-IV and Cluster-VII. Intercrossing among the genotypes belonging to Cluster-II, IV and VII was suggested to develop high yielding varieties with other desirable characters.
