The experiment was conducted to study the nature and extent of genetic diversity and its
relationship with ODAP content. The materials comprising of 16 low and 16 high seed
OOAP group populations were grown in two separate field trials. Observations were
recorded on days to 50% flowering, flowers/plant, flowering to maturity duration, plant
height, branches/plant, pods/plant, pod length, seeds/pod, 1oo-seed weight, biomass/plant
and seed yield. The data were subjected to multivariate 0 2 as well as canonical analyses.
The results showed existence of considerable genetic diversity in both group of
Keywords: Lathyrus sativus, genetic diversity, ODAP content, multivariate analysis.
