Eight genotypes of tall fescue were selected from a plant
population consisting of 9000 individuals. Selection was based on
early maturity, self-sterility, seed and forage potential, and nutritive
Parental clones, single cross, open pollinated, self pollinated
and polycross seeds were organized into a randomized block experiment
with five replications...
Response to heterosis for plant height, anthesis date, panicle
number, seed yield, and fall vigor rating was determined in a tall.
fescue group selected for diverse morphology, origin, and anthesis
date. Parents, single-cross progeny (SX), and first generation
selfed progeny (S₁) were included in the study.
Each experimental plot consisted...
The single-cross and most F₂ progenies of 19 genotypes of
tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea, Schreb. ) were used to study the
breeding behavior of forage yield. Parental genotypes were selected
for high self-sterility, high chromogen and high crude protein. These
were studied in two groups of nine intermediate and ten...
Estimates of heritability and associations of tiller number,
seed number, seed weight, and seed yield were determined in two
groups of tall fescue. Group E was early maturing and had eight
parental clones, while group I was intermediate in maturity and had
nine parental clones. The parents and five progeny...
