Abstract

The 60 blackgram genotypes were grouped in to four clusters to estimate the genetic diversity in yield, yield components and quality traits. Among all the characters, the contribution of number of pods per plant was maximum (31.02%) followed by grain yield (23.45%) and leaf number per plant (9.04%). The maximum inter cluster distance was reported in cluster IV followed by cluster I (D = 35.481). Cluster IV showed the highest cluster mean for six characters namely, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, 100 seed weight, apparent grain volume and grain yield.
