Topographically, Pantnagar falls in the humid and subtropical (Tarai) climate of North West Plain Zone (NWPZ).
The highest genetic diversity in NWPZ may be because of the large numbers of breeding centers involved in the development of cultivars and also because of the diverse sources used in those crossing program.
Similar relationships were observed when Nei's genetic distance matrix was used except that cultivars from PZ showed a closer relationship to cultivars from NWPZ. Different gliadins might have some advantage over other gliadins in adaptation to the conditions prevailing in these zones or these are closely linked with genes having adaptive value to the specific environment, though that needs to be confirmed by genetic analysis.
