Genetic diversity studies of eleven hybrids and their twelve parents were also carried out using morphological and molecular markers. Ten morphological traits were used for morphological diversity studies. Out of ten, six traits showed polymorphism. Ten SSR primers of CCB series were used in molecular diversity analysis; all primers were found to be polymorphic among the parents and the hybrids. Similarity index values ranged from 0.166 to 1.00, 0.390 to 0.894, 0.375 to 0.875 for morphologically among parents, molecular level among parents and hybrids respectively. Dendrogram analysis showed five, seven and six clusters, at morphologically among parents, molecular level among parents and hybrids respectively. Present study will be help full for identification of genetically diverse parents and hybrids for broadening the genetic base and improving the breeding efficiency.
