Cite article:- Das S., Mohapatra A.K., Patnaik R.K., Swain D., Gantayat B.P. (2024). CLUSTERING OF JATROPHA CURCAS PROVENANCES. Agricultural Science Digest. 28(4): 298 - 300. doi: .
Genetic divergence among 18 provenances of Jatropha curcasin respect of their growth characters was done by cluster analysis following numerical taxonomic approach (NT). The dendrogram showed that 18 provenances could be grouped into 3, 4 and 12 numbers of clusters at 70%, 80% and 90% phenon level, respectively. Mean performance of provenances indicated that Jodhpur-1 and Utkal nursery werethe best for reforestation of wastelands of Orissa. Crossing between provenances of different clusters would create genetic variability for further improvement.
