Abstract

The magnitude of genetic divergence among thirty diverse genotypes of yard long bean was studied using Mahalanobis D2 statistic and were grouped into four clusters. The inter cluster distance was maximum between cluster I and cluster III. Heterotic combinations are expected between die selected parents of the diverse groups.
