Abstract


The ever increasing demands for raw materials obtained from Gentiana lutea L. species. will lead to introducing this species into culture. The cultivators will have the chance to obtain significant earnings by selling the production. For this. we identified 10 families that can be a prime source of germplasm for some amelioration. They were subjected to an analysis study of the variability of diverse quantitative elements. In the present article. we show the correlations carried out between different characters: the parcel diameter. the length of the rhizome. the number of ramifications. total mass of subterranean organs. height. number of knots. number of bastes. total number of fruits on the plant.
The superior quality of the raw material obtained trough the cultivation methods established as the research we developed and extending a superior cultivator into the culture. will decrease the temptation of harvesting our country’s spontaneous flora. this species having a small habitat and a small density. that do not allow satisfying the industry’s demand.
