The present investigation was carried out with 60 genotypes including 4 checks (KIRAN, DEEPIKA, PADMINI, and INDIRA ALSI) and 56 entries. The experiment was laid down in medium black soil under rainfed conditions during rabi season with statistical design, Augmented Block Design comprising 07 blocks, each block consists of 8 genotypes with 4 checks total of 12 plots. The linseed was classified into 5 clusters. Cluster I was the largest, containing of 18 genotypes followed by cluster IV comprising 17 genotypes, cluster V with 13 genotypes, cluster II comprising 7 genotypes, while cluster III with 5 genotypes. The highest intra cluster distance was recorded for cluster III (2123.64) (46.08), followed by cluster V (1640.66) (40.50), cluster II (1572.96) (36.66), cluster IV (1539.42) (39.23), while the lowest intra cluster distance was observed for cluster I (1411.20) (37.56). highest inter-cluster distance was recorded between cluster II and III, followed by clusters III and V, cluster III and IV, cluster I and II, cluster I and V, cluster I and III, cluster II and IV, cluster I and IV, cluster II and V, while the lowest inter cluster distance was observed between cluster IV and V. Genotypes be in cluster I demonstrate largest genetic diversity within the cluster be comparable to the genotypes be the member of other clusters. Thus, hybridization can be taken among all these genotypes to getting useful sergeants in F2 generations for the yield and yield contributing characters.
