Several molecular methods were tested to distinguish 24 barley genotypes based on cold hardiness. We used a convenient, efficient and reliable PCR based method for barley to determine the cold tolerant and sensitive genotypes. Cold hardiness was strongly correlated with the existence of cold-induced genes. Significant differences were found based on Field Survival Index (FSI) of genotypes. Based on combination of FSI values and PCR detection pattern of cold-induced genes, PCR analysis can be used in plant breeding programs in order to shorten selection period at environmental stress studies and get exact results.
