Abstract:
Under ‘Hariyali Prasar Yojna’ Chhattisgarh State Forest Department has procured and planted elite eucalyptus clones on large scale in different forest circles/divisions of the state during the monsoon of 2015–16 and 2016–17. To assess the genetic homogeneity of the supplied clones, genetic fidelity testing of the procured clones was carried out using ISSR marker. The monomorphic pattern of ISSR profiles observed for the ramets of the respective clones in comparison with their mother plant confirmed the genetic purity. This also demonstrates the application of molecular marker technology for quality control in social forestry plantation.
Amplification profile of the eucalyptus clones 7, 413 and 316 received from Balodabazor Forest Division (Raipur Circle), Chhattisgarh using ISSR primer.
