Random amplified polymorphic DNA technology was used to analyze the genetic diversity of 25 salt-tolerant alfalfa varieties using 30 different primers. Results showed that the percentage of polymorphic loci between single-plant DNA was 81.52%, and that between mixed DNA of various varieties was 61.65%. Compared to the mixed DNA samples, single-plant DNA samples can better reveal the level of genetic variation among and between alfalfa varieties.
