The investigation was carried out with 20 genotypes of pea (Pisum sativum L.) at Horticulture Research Centre (HRC) of SVPUAT, Meerut, UP during 2016-17 to study the genetic diversity among the genotypes. The experiment was laid down in randomized block design (RBD) with 03 replications. The experiment having 10 observations on the basis of 5 randomly selected plants from each replication. D2 analysis grouped into four clusters showing the existence of considerable amount of variation among the genotypes. Maximum pod yield 73.20 q/ha was found in PB-89 genotype. Cluster pattern revealed that, cluster III had largest number of genotypes (10) followed by cluster II (5 genotypes), cluster IV (3 genotypes) and cluster I had only (2 genotypes). Highest intra cluster distance were found cluster II (D2 =1.983) whereas, highest inter cluster distance was observed between cluster III and I (D2 = 6.627). The cluster means revealed the best cluster for various growth and flowering traits, depending upon the aim of breeding, hence the potential line can be selected from different clusters as parents.
