GENETIC DIVERSITY AMONG CHICKPEA ACCESSIONS

Published on

Multivariate analysis of divergence among 60 entries of chickpea for seven developmental
characters led to their grouping into five dusters. Grouping of entries in different dusters
was not related to their geographic origin. The interduster 0 2 values ranged from 8.0 to
38.2. Based on mean performance, genetic distance and dustering pattern, hybridization
involving parents from clusters II and V may give higher yielding varieties.
