Abstract:

The experiment was performed at Research cum Instructional Farm, Shaheed Gundadhoor College of Agriculture and Research Station, Kumhrawand, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh. A total of 56germplasm lines and 1 check variety of horsegram were assessed for 10 quantitative traits during kharif2018.Genotypes were grouped into eight clusters. Clusters VI had maximum intra cluster distance while inter cluster distance was maximum between cluster VI and cluster VIII. Cluster III and cluster VIII had highest mean values for seed yield per plant characters. The characters viz., pods per plant followed by days to maturity and seed yield per plant were main contribution to total divergence. Based on the result genotypes belonging to clusters II, III and VIII are recommended for hybridization, as these genotypes showed good performance for seed yield and belong to the diverse clusters.
