Abstract

Genetic diversity was evaluated among twenty seven sweet sorghum germpalsm genotypes using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) polymorphic markers. RAPD markers were efficient and detected 93.4 per cent polymorphism among the accessions. All the genotypes were grouped into three clusters of which all the females came under one single cluster with exception of ICSB 293. Similarly all the males were evenly distributed except one genotype, SSV 74 which formed a distinct cluster itself. Hence, RAPD markers proved to very useful in estimating the genetic diversity among sweet sorghum accessions.
