The present investigation was conducted to examine the genetic divergence existing among sixty
two genotypes of fieldpea. These genotypes were evaluated for ten characters. Clusters showing
maximum intra and inter cluster values suggested that genotypes included in these clusters may
show high heterotic response and will produce better segregants in response to high degree of
genetic diversity in the genotypes
