Abstract

Genetic diversity in chickpea with 132 genotypes revealed significant differences among the genotypes for yield and its component characters. The genotypes were grouped into nine clusters. Cluster I was the largest, comprising of 20 genotypes, followed by clusters V and VII with 16 and 15 genotypes, respectively. Maximum intra - cluster distance (1.806) was observed in cluster VI followed by cluster IV (1.799), cluster I (1.705) and cluster IX (1.642). Maximum inter cluster distance was noticed between clusters I and VIII (5.114). Crossing the genotypes between the clusters I and VIII may lead to maximum diversity in the segregating populatlons and development of high yielding varieties
