Abstract: An attempt was made to study the genetic diversity among the 65 genotypes of faba bean. Significant difference for various traits indicated substantial amount of variability existed among the genotypes for various traits. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was observed for seed yield, 100 seed weight, pod length, number of pods per plant, number of branches per plant, number of clusters per plant and days to 50% flowering. In general phenotypic correlation coefficients were higher in magnitude than their genotypic correlation coefficient. Seed yield per plant was found to be positively and significantly correlated with days to 50% flowering, days to maturity, number of branches per plant, number of cluster per plant, number of pods per plant, pods length, number of seeds per pod and 100 seed weight. Path analysis revealed that characters such as 100 seed weight and number of pods per plant were the major component traits of seed yield and hence these characters should be given priority in selection in view of their high heritability coupled with high genetic advance also. Following non hiericial eucleadean cluster analysis all 65 genotypes were grouped into 9 clusters with variable number of genotypes. On the the basis of data on genetic diversity and mean performance of matric traits nine diverse and superior genotypes namely EC-628955, EC-628942, EC- 628937, EC-628936, EC-591755, EC-3134, EC-2112, EC-628930 and EC-591776 were identified as promising for most of the traits. So these genotypes may be used in further crop improvement programme.
