Genetic divergence studies in little millet (Panicum sumatrense L.)

Suryanarayana L and Sekhar D
Twenty three genotypes of little millet were evaluated for genetic diversity using Mahalanobis D2 statistics for five quantitative traits during kharif, 2011. The data was subjected to Mahalanobis’ D2 statistics, all the 23 genotypes in the present study were grouped into six clusters. Maximum number of genotypes (8) were included in cluster VI followed by cluster-I (7), cluster-II, III, IV and V with two genotype in each cluster. Considering the inter cluster distances, it was highest between cluster IV and V (163.09) followed by V and VI (145.69). Among the five characters studied, grain yield (q/ha), days to 50% flowering and plant height (cm) contributed maximum towards the total divergence and were found to be responsible for primary differentiation.
