Genetic divergence in okra [Abelmoschus esculentus L. (Moench)]q
Journal Title:International Journal of Agricultural Sciences
Twenty five genotypes of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) were evaluated for genetic divergence for yield and its attributing
characters. The genotypes were grouped in seven clusters on the basis of relative magnitude of D2 values. The maximum genetic distance was
observed between cluster II and VI followed by Cluster VI and VII. However, cluster III and IV showed lowest degree of divergence. The
mean value of different clusters, genotypes having high yield along with plant height, internodal length, fruit weight, fruit length, 1000 seed
weight were observed in cluster VI having genotypes like AE 13 and AE 21. Cluster II showed lowest mean values for maximum characters.
