In the high altitude areas of western Himalaya, barley is a crop of marginal, low input drought stressed environments. The landraces grown in these areas are favoured for their quality, both as grain and straw. However, area under the naked barley landraces, during the last three to four decades, has declined considerably and their ex situ and in situ conservation requires attention. Morphological and RAPD descriptors of a collection of 70 landraces from the higher Himalayan ranges of… CONTINUE READING
