Estimation of genetic diversity in rabi ridge gourd (Luffa acutangula L.)

G Suresh, N Seenivasan, J Srinivas and BSK Nikhil
The experiment was conducted at student research farm COH – Mojerla during Rabi season 2020, to estimate genetic diversity of Ridge gourd. 24 genotypes of ridge gourd were evaluated for sixteen characters in a randomized block design, to study the genetic divergence. D2 statistic indicated that the genotypes studied were genetically diverse. The genotypes were grouped into five clusters. Cluster I contained 19 genotypes and cluster II, III, IV and V were solitary with one genotype. In overall, D2 analysis suggested that the promising genotypes viz., IC- 279347, IC- 262128, IC- 355974 and IC- 355959, with high yield component may be utilised as parents in further improvement studies through various breeding strategies.
