Abstract

Sixty six genotypes of linseed were analysed for the morphological traits to investigate the genetic diversity between and within the genotypes. The field data was initially subjected to analysis of variance. There were highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits indicating the presence of variability among the genotypes and the possibility to undertake cluster analysis. The phenotypic divergence and relative importance were estimated by multivariate analysis. The cluster analysis classified linseed genotypes in to nine major groups. The maximum intercluster diversity was observed between cluster VIII and V. Based on mean performance of the genotypes and intercluster distance the crosses between ICAR Sel-1 and L-9, NDC 2005-34, H660, LCK 87042, NDL2005-22, GS335 is recommended to get use full transgressive sergeants in linseed.
