Forty-four varieties of different Brassica group of crop among released and notified varieties having best quality traits were selected to classify into different clusters to select parental types for breeding programme. All the varieties were classified into six clusters considering 10 quality traits (Table 1) using SPAR-2 and INDOSTAT software programme. Though the varieties in 3 clusters (Cluster #1, #5 and #6) are having a mixture of different Brassica species, but having best quality traits which can be selected for breeding programme, available within the species in different clusters to enhance the quality of oil in different Brassica crops. It was also revealed from the study that statistically all the species of Brassica are same in quality as they fell in the same cluster.
