Abstract:
Here we determined the diversity in the 65 genotypes of faba bean of different agro ecological origins. Plants were grown in randomized block design in three replications. Further, the genotypes were characterized based on the ten morphological traits. Highly significant differences were determined for all of the studied traits. Whereas, the number of cluster per plant was positively correlated with the pods per plants. Moreover, the trait number of cluster per plant determined the most substantial positive effect on seed yield. Overall, our results indicate a wide range of variability for further selection and improvement of faba bean ideotype.
