SummaryTetraploid alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) clones were derived from the same diploid genetic background by four different methods. A phenotypically superior clone was selected from each method and compared for herbage yield and fertility. The four methods and their best clones were: a) In vitro somatic chromosome doubling of one diploid hybrid (HG2-4x); b) selection within a two allele tetraploid synthetic population derived from HG2-4x (HAG); c) somaclonal variant selection from cell… CONTINUE READING
