Abstract

A total of 33 indigenous cultivars of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] were grown in replicated trial during rabi season of 1999 to assess genetic divergence based on ten developmental characters. The genotypes were grouped into five clusters. Amongst ten characters, grains/panicle paid maximum contribution towards genetic divergence. The inter-group distances were much longer than the intra-group distances. Cluster III was the largest with 11 genotypes and the cluster II was the smallest with 2 genotypes. Cluster III showed the maximum genetic distance (207.43) from cluster V. Simultaneous consideration of intercluster and intra cluster distances 7 genotypes of cluster I were genetically worthful to initiate the crossing programme for high heterotic effects in segregants. Cluster II exhibited the maximum intra cluster distance (3.15) and had considerable genetical divergence from rest of the clusters. Thus, 2 genotypes belonging to cluster II might be hybridized with the genotypes of other clusters for getting desirable improvement of specific traits in sorghum.
