Abstract

Germplasm is a vital resource and if properly described, characterized and evaluated once, can be utilized for long term methodical crop improvement. Thus, the present investigation “DNA finger printing in Acorus calamus” was carried out with the objective to document information on plant morphology and assess the extent of genetic diversity in Acorus calamus pool by using RAPD and SSR marker.


The DNA finger printing revealed that Accession-9, the clone collected from Chinthapalli of Vizag district, A.P showed diversity at molecular level. The morphological characterization also revealed that Accession – 9 produced high yields compared to other accessions.
