Performance of Brinjal (Solanum melongena) Genotypes through Genetic Variability Analysis

Nur Shahi Begum Nishi, Bir Jahangir Shirazy, Md. Mostofa Mahbub


The physiomorphological divergence was assessed in fifteen brinjal genotypes by using cluster mean analysis and mean difference to identify parental genotypes for future breeding program in order to develop new high yielding varieties in randomized complete block design with three replications. Plant height, days to first flowering, number of branch and number of fruits per plant have the highest percent of variations among the traits. The genotypes under the experiment were grouped into five clusters. The highest inter cluster distance was found between cluster III and IV followed by IV and V. According to relative contributions of the nine characters length of fruit and yield per plant have the prominent influence towards varietal improvement. Selecting genotypes from distant clusters probably provide promising recombinants and better segregants for future breeding platform.
