The experiment was carried out at the research field of Spices Research Centre, Shibganj, Bogra, Bangladesh to find out the Genetic diversity among 20 germplasms of Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) during Rabi 2013-14 using morphological traits. D2 analysis of 20 ginger lines and analysis of variance were done. The lines were grouped into five clusters. The inter-cluster distance was larger than the intra-cluster distances. Maximum inter-cluster distance was found between cluster I and IV (48.17) followed by cluster III and IV (42.55) and me and II (30.97) and me and V (27.84). It may be concluded that the line in cluster I (15) and the line in cluster III (3, 5, and 11) grouped here is superior to all other clusters and could be used for future breeding work.
