The present study focuses on examining the genetic diversity in 104 accessions of rapeseed and mustard germplasm gathered from different regions of Pakistan. Correlation studies revealed positive correlation of yield component with morphological characters at 5% and 1% level of significance Cluster analysis divided the accessions into five major clusters I, II, III, IV and V. These diverse the germplasm are appropriate for planning of hybridization of programs.
