Abstract: The demand and supply of wheat for burgeoning global population reflects country’s capability to accept forthcoming food security challenge to feed 9 billion peoples in coming decades with a mission for plentiful and equitably food distribution so that nobody will go to the bed hungry. Wheat is considered as the grain of life due to its indefinite and vital role to provide plentiful protein, fiber and other micronutrients. Wheat is perfectly mother of mostly offered food and feed commodities that mainly depends upon its production, consumption, wider adoptability in diverse environments. To ensure local to global food security, the durable wheat varieties are crossed for wider adoptability. Genetic diversity assessment will help the plant breeders in selecting the enhanced genotypes to deliver the propinquity in transgressive segregants. The present study was conducted in College of Agriculture, University of Sargodha, Pakistan with the aim and objective to determine the genetic diversity for the selection of candidate genotypes having much yield potential. The traits data was recorded in 20 wheat genotypes for eight morphological traits. The results showed positive diversities in all morphological traits in greater extent. These fabulous parameters depicting yield and yield related traits potentially assess the germplasm. The diverse genotypes assessed in this study will pave the path of development and provide an excellent offer a refrained paradigm shift to achieve sustainable development goals to reduce poverty and ensure food security.
