Inter tree variability in chips purpose jackfruit selections of Western Ghats of Karnataka, India

Published on

The 62 jackfruit selections studied for chips purpose from
the hilly (34 types) and coastal (28 types) zones of
Karnataka in India were grouped into 6 clusters using
Toucher’s values method employed on the Mahalanobis’s
generalized distance (D²) values. Cluster A accounted for
45 selections followed by cluster B (10 selections) and
cluster C (4 selections), whereas cluster D, E and F were
solitary having single selection each. Inter cluster distance
was maximum between cluster E and F (35.842) followed
by cluster A and E (28.281) and was minimum between
cluster C and D (9.362). The present study reveals that
high chips yielding types have also recorded high dry
matter content indicating a direct relationship between
these characters. The relative contribution of characters
clearly indicated that chips recovery contributed maximum
for divergence (62.61%) followed by TSS (15.34%) and
hence the selection of jackfruits for chips purpose should
deem these characters.
