Background: Genetic diversity is referred to the diversity present within different genotypes of same species, serves as the most valuable reservoir in providing variability for various traits. This variability would provide a basis for improving the crop in breeding program. The present study aimed to assessment of genetic diversity and selection of superior genotypes for fenugreek breeding.
Methods: In this study, 75 fenugreek genotypes with cultivars (Çiftçi and Gürarslan) were used and these genotypes were established in augmented trial design. Each genotype was analyzed for morphological and yield traits and nineteen traits were scored according to the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV).
Result: As a result of the study, PI 568215 and PI 577712 were noted as promising genotypes for seed yield and protein content, respectively. Dendrogram analysis showed that same origin genotypes were found in different main groups. Correlation analysis revealed that 22 positive or negative correlations were found among the examined properties. PCA analysis results were found among the examined properties and total variation was noted as 39.95%.
