The experiment was carried out at the research field of Spices Research Centre, Shibganj, Bogra, Bangladesh to find out the Genetic di versity among 13 germplasms of Garlic (Allium sativum L) during Rabi 2013-14 using morphological traits. D2 analysis of 13 garlic lines and analysis of variance were done. The lines were grouped into four clusters. The-inter cluster distance was larger than the intra-cluster distances. Maximum inter cluster distance was found between cluster I and II (11.433) followed by cluster III and IV (11.420) and I and IV (11.146). It may be concluded that the line in cluster II (5) and the line in cluster IV (4, 6 10, 11 and 12) grouped here is superior to all other clusters and could be used for future breeding work.
