ASSESSMENT OF GENETIC DIVERSITY AMONG MACEDONIAN TOMATO (LYCOPERSICON ESCULENTUM MILL.) LANDRACES
This paper presents the results of evaluation of the 27 tomato landraces collected from different regions of Macedonia. Selected accessions were tested by 10 agronomic and fruit characteristics. Using cluster analysis and principal component analysis, data were obtained for genetic remoteness of the tested landraces and the relative influence of each trait. Certain landraces are characterized by positive values that should be protected from any erosion, and its possible to be used in plant breeding programs. Using hierarchical grouping analysis, the genotypes were classified into four groups.
