Fertile intergeneric hybrids of Agropyron cristatum L. with Lolium perenne L. have been created and gene sources of high productivity have been identified. The multilocus DNA marking of Agarwood (Agropyron cristatum L.) using RAPD and ISSR primers allowed to differentiate all the investigated genotypes, to develop and compile unique profiles for each of them. The genetic passports for the samples studied have been compiled on the base of multilocus RAPD/ISSR spectra.

Keywords: Agropyron cristatum L., Lolium perenne L., intergeneric hybrids, pro-postgamous compatibility, RAPD-PCR and ISSR-PCR analysis, molecular genetic certification
