Abstract

Twenty accessions of Bixa orellana L.,were assessed for the genetic divergence using Mahalanobis D2 statistics. The clustering pattern indicated that there was no association between geographical distribution of the accessions and genetic divergence. The characters namely capsule length and breadth, number of seeds/ capsule and seed bixin content of the accessions were analyzed. All these characters like capsule length and breadth, number of seeds per capsule and seed bixin content were contributing maximum to the divergence. Therefore, selection of divergent parents based on these characters is recommended for producing good hybrids.
