Classification of a world collection of white clover cultivars
Morphology, flowering, cyanogenesis and leaf markings of 109 white clover cultivars, grown as spaced plants and in small plots, were measured. Expand
Comparative evaluation of white clover cultivars in spaced plant and small mixed species plot trials
Abstract The ability to predict the growth of 124 white clover cultivars in a grass sward under sheep grazing from performance in a spaced plant block was examined. Over a 3-year period the extent ofExpand
Heritability of frost tolerance in white clover (Trifolium repens).
It was concluded that, because heritability for frost tolerance was high, selection for this character and incorporation of frost tolerance into agronomically suitable but frost-sensitive cultivars by breeding would be successful. Expand
Enhanced drought tolerance in white clover 9 7
Drought-stress limits white clover (Trifolium repens L.) persistence in many New Zealand regions. As a component of breeding for enhanced drought tolerance, 8 selection groups (110 lines in total) ofExpand
Relationships between shoot and root characteristics of white clover cultivars differing in response to phosphorus
Root dry weight and the relationship between shoot and root characteristics for 119 white clover cultivars and breeding lines were examined and root/shoot ratio appeared to be unrelated to the functions used to describe the P response of the 119 cultivars studied. Expand
Effectiveness of recurrent selection of white clover (Trifolium repens) for resistance to New Zealand populations of clover cyst nematode (Heterodera trifolii)
Results indicate that development of a white clover cultivar resistant to H. trifolii is achievable and that the resistance will be effective against the nematode in most of New Zealand. Expand
Variation in white clover for root‐knot nematode resistance
While there were significant correlations between the re‐screens for galls, roots, and galls/root, the values showed that repeatability was low, and Comparisons with other nematode and clover species ... Expand
Growth and survival of grass grub, Costelytra zealandica, (White) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) on Trifolium species and T. repens × T. uniflorum hybrids
Grass grub larval growth under controlled environment conditions was significantly lower on Trifolium arvense, T. affine,T. Expand
Variation in white clover for resistance to clover cyst nematode
Two Italian Ladino cultivars were generally among the most resistant lines, as was a line bred for H. trifolii resistance in the Netherlands. Expand
