Buffel grass is a fodder grass that reproduces mainly via apomixis. Using in vitro tissue culture in apomictic species provides alternatives that can be applied in a breeding program. The aims of this work were to establish a protocol for in vitro generation of apomictic buffel grass genotypes using anthers as explants and to evaluate the genetic stability(More)
Buffelgrass is a forage grass that reproduces mainly by apomixis. In species with this reproduction mode, in vitro selection allows the incorporation of alternatives in a breeding program. The aims were to define a protocol for in vitro selection, provide a molecular and morphological characterization of the progenies of regenerated plants, and evaluate(More)
As part of a breeding program for new salt-tolerant sexual genotypes of Cenchrus ciliaris L., here we evaluated the salt-stress response of two new sexual hybrids, obtained by controlled crosses, at seedling and germination stages. A seedling hydroponic experiment with 300 mM NaCl was performed and physiological variables and growth components were(More)
