RELATIONSHIP OF F2 SEGREGATION PATTERN WITH GENETIC DIVERGENCE OF PARENTS IN SESAME

Published on

Twenty nine varieties of sesame collected from 11 states of India were evaluated in rabi
season. Based on DZand canonical analysis, the varieties were grouped into nine clusters.
The pattern of clustering did not show any relationship with geographic origin. In a study
of pattern of Fz segregation in 25 crosses involving 10 parents distributed in six dusters,
eightcrosses showed high breeding potential. The parents involved in these eight potential
crosses had moderate genetic divergence.
 

Keywords: Sesame, Sesamum indicum, D2 statistic, genetic diversity.
