commercial export and trading of guava fruit, we initiated a guava breeding project and developed new varieties that have much better storage lives and emit fewer odors than the traditional locally grown variety ( Zipori et al., 2006 ). Two of these new

development of research and technology, the breeding of S. splendens has been largely improved ( Liu et al., 2012 ), and many new varieties have been cultivated, such as S. splendens ‘Zhongchuanhong’, a tall variety breed ( Hui et al., 2004 ), and S

This study was carried out to prove the new variety's originality by using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) Analysis and to develope the specific markers for distinction new variety from others to database for improving the efficiency of germplasm conservation. The RAPD procedure was used to determine genetic diversity of 13 potato varieties including seven recommended varieties of Korea and six genotypes. Genomic DNAs from the 13 genotypes were amplified using PCR and URP 2F, 4R and 8R primers. URP primers which were 20-mers were received from NIAST (National Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology, Suwon, Korea) and they were shown very high reproducibility because of the high annealing temperature above 55 °C. So, they were known to be very desirable primers to examine the specificity between inter and intra species in various spectra. These 13 lines have many resemblances in plant characteristics each other because `Jopung', '92N09-6', `Daekwan 68', and `Daekwan 70' were originated from `Superior', `Atlantic', `Namsuh', and `Irish Cobbler' respectively. So, there are many difficulties to distinct new variety by the naked eye. The results of this study show that 2 sets of URP primers are very useful to distinct new variety and mutants from others.

The Plant Variety Protection (PVP) Act provides intellectual property rights to new varieties of seed-reproduced plants. Eligible varieties must demonstrate that they are uniform, stable, and distinct from all other varieties. In 1991 the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) adopted a new Convention. As a member of UPOV, the United States needed to amend the PVP Act to conform to the 1991 UPOV Convention. Amendments to the PVP Act were signed by President Clinton on 6 Oct. 1994, and will become effective on 4 Apr. 1995. Among other changes, these amendments will provide protection to tuber-propagated varieties and first-generation hybrids. An overview of the amendments and a comparison of rights granted under PVP and plant patents will be presented.
