Abstract

Genetic diversity is the prerequisite for any crop improvement programme as it helps in selection of parents having wide variability for different characters. The entries were grouped into six clusters. Maximum numbers of genotypes were included in cluster VI which has 22 genotypes. Maximum intra cluster distance was recorded for cluster I and minimum for cluster VI, whereas, maximum inter cluster distance was recorded between cluster III and II and minimum between cluster VI and I.
