Assessment of genetic fidelity among Agave tequilana plants propagated asexually via rhizomes versus in vitro culture

Abstract

Agave tequilana is a species of great economic importance for the Mexican society. Like most agaves, it can be propagated either sexually or asexually. However, plants originating from rhizomes are mainly used for commercial production. The aim of this study was to determine the genetic fidelity of plants that were obtained from the field and propagated… (More)
