STUDY OF SOME IRANIAN APRICOT WITH LEAF MORPHOLOGICAL MARKERS (LEAF CHARACTERISTICS)Reza Kamrani, Gagik Santrosian and Naser Bouzari
This research was done at seed and plant improvement research institute of Karaj, Iran. In this experiment Rondom Complet Block designe with four replications was used, and seventeen leaf characters on twenty of Iran apricot genotypes were studied. The aim of this research was to develop quantitative methods for description of the apricot genotypes. Morphological characters Including : Leaf Blade : (Length, Width, Ratio length/width, Intensity of green colour of upper side, Shape of base, Angle of apex, Length of tip, Incisions of margin, Undulation of margin, Profile in cross section, Chlorophyll). Petiole : (Length, Ratio length of blade/length of petiole, Thickness, Anthocyanin colouration of upperside, Predominant number of Nectaris). Weight of ten leaves. The name of genotypes as follows :BN-KB 21, BN-HS 524, BN-RE527, Jahangiri, Shahrood49, Shahrood15, Shahrood 48, BN-KB 29, BN-KB 576, Shahrood 48 A, BN-KB 31, Azgadi, BN-NO 512, BN KB 7, Shahrood31, BN- SH 723, Royal, Shahrood18, BN-KB 40, BN-KB 24. As a result: The Difference between genotypes is significant and the difference between leaf morphological characters will be used to distinguish of genotypes in these Iran Apricots.
