Divergence analysis among 44 genotypes of lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) has been worked out using Mahalanobis 1)2 statistics. The 44 genotypes were grouped into ten clusters including four single genotype clusters. Genotypes of different eco-geographical regions were found to cluster together. Maximum genetic distance was observed between cluster VI and X, indicating greater genetic divergence between the genotypes belonging to these clusters. Days to 50% flowering, number of clusters per plant, number of pods per cluster, number of pods per plant and seed yield per plant were found to be responsible for maximum differences between groups. On the basis of clustering pattern and performance, the genotypes Sehore 74-3 and L-4629 of cluster VI and the genotype PL 88–57 of cluster X were identified as promising parents for hybridization and to obtain desirable segregants through selection in the advance breeding programme in lentil.
