Genetic improvement of plants need a high genetic diversity and molecular markers offer a powerful tool for its assessment. Poa pratensis has extensive divergence in natural old turfs and pastures in temperate zones of Iran, being useful for breeding programs. In this research, RAPD markers were used to study the genetic diversity of 19 turfgrass genotypes (including 16 genotypes of Poa pratensis along with one genotype from each of Lolium perenne, Cynodon dactylon and Festuca arundinacea… CONTINUE READING
