GENETIC DIVERGENCE IN EARLY MATURING PIGEONPEA

Published on

D2 analysis in 42 genotypes of early pigeonpea revealed considerable diversity, on the basis
of which they were grouped into 8 clusters. Branches/plant, pods/plant, harvest index and
yield/plant contributed maximum to the total genetic divergence. The genotypes of clusters
II and VII can be used as parents in hybridization programme to develop early maturing,
high yielding pigeonpea varieties.
 

Keywords: Cajanus cajan, D2 statistic, genetic divergence.
