Abstract

Evaluates over 30 accessions from three locations of Amorpha fruticosa for genetic diversity. Amorpha fruticosa has potential to be used for livestock forage and biomass energy. Morphological, agronomic, and phenological traits varied by accession in most cases, with diversity among accessions often related to geographic origin.
