Thirty five sweet sorghum genotypes of diverse origin were subjected to multivariate analysis. Depending on the D 2 values, these were grouped in to six clusters. Cluster II was the largest and consisted of 10 genotypes and cluster VI was the least with one genotype. The inter-cluster distances were higher than the intracluster distances reflecting wider genetic diversity among the genotypes. Based on the D 2 values, the genotypes from diverse clusters would be derived and used in the
