Genetic diversity of finger millet (Eleusine coracana (L) Gaertn) germplasm under Sodic condition

Author(s):

Abstract:
The experimental material comprised of 122 diverse genotypes of finger millet (Eleusine coracana (L) Gaertn). The data on eleven quantitative characters were recorded to assess the magnitude of genetic diversity through D2 analysis. Based on genetic distance, finger millet genotypes were grouped into six clusters. Among the six clusters, cluster VI had the highest number of genotypes (52) and cluster II had the lowest number of 2 genotypes. The range of inter cluster distance was 39.545 (between cluster III and IV) to 27.234 (between cluster II and VI). The genotypes in cluster III and cluster IV exhibited high degree of genetic diversity due to maximum inter cluster distance between them and these genotypes may be utilized under hybridization programme for getting high yielding and desirable recombinants.
