Correlated responses in forage yield and nutritional value from phenotypic recurrent selection for reduced fiber concentration in smooth bromegrass

Abstract

Selection for reduced fiber concentration in forage crops is considered to be an effective approach to improve the voluntary intake potential of forages. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of several modifications to phenotypic recurrent selection for reducing neutral detergent fiber (NDF) concentration and its effect on correlated… (More)
