Genetic relationship within accessions of beniseed (Sesamum indicum. L)

J A Awopetu, M O Yusuph


A study of the genetic relationship within some accessions of Beniseed (Sesanum indicum L.) was carried out with the aid of multivariate analysis of Eucilidean Distance of nearest and further neighbour as well as group average.

      Data on agronomic traits showed significant differences both in the vegetative and reproductive phases of the genotypes.  The resulting dendrograms from the numerical analysis delineated the accessions into groups and sub-groups which can be assessed to serve as base lines for parental selection in respect of future genetic breeding programmes.
