Genetic diversity studies using Mahalanobis method in Mungbean under Acidic soils of Manipur
Keywords:genetic diversity, multivariate analysis, mungbean
The cultivation of mungbean is important in the NEH region. The crop's genetic improvement mostly depends on the degree of genetic variability already present in the base population, which also acts as a valuable source of the base population for a wide variety of genetic variations. The present study aimed to study the genetic diversity analysis using the Mahalanobis method in mungbean grown under acid soils in Manipur, India. The present result showed that Mungbean genotypes have differed significantly for all characters in the analysis of variance. Eleven clusters had all twenty-eight genotypes. Cluster II had the most genotypes (8), followed by cluster III (4), cluster I, V & VII (3), cluster VI (2), and clusters IV, VIII, IX, X, and XI (1 each). Furthermore, mungbean genotypes also showed significant variation in the grouping.
