Red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) is a temperate forage species that is extensively used in Argentina, but little effort in breeding has been made so far. Meanwhile, red clover breeding is strong in Europe and North America. In order to contribute to the utilisation of red clover genetic resources, 39 accessions of different origins were evaluated at Pergamino Inta Experimental Station. A broad phenotypic variation was detected for many of the 14 attributes considered. Variables that… 
Genetic diversity in red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) revealed by morphological and microsatellite (SSR) markers
Evaluated the diversity of a set of accessions from the NPGS-USDA core collection at the morphological and molecular level in order to extract some valuable accessions for Brazilian red clover breeding programs, finding genetic diversity measured with SSR markers was high.
Study of red clover wild populations from the territory of Serbia for the purpose of pre-selection
Evaluating the agronomic value of red clover wild populations in Serbia found that positive traits such as: high green mass yield, number of stems as well as the percentage of proteins can be combined for the purpose of getting synthetic varieties.
Agronomic Evaluation and Utilization of Red Clover (Trifolium pratense L.) Germplasm
This research shows that there is a great genetic variability in the investigated germplasm collection and the most promising materials were selected to form a new breeding gene pool that could be helpful for the improvement of the red clover breeding programme.
Morphoagronomic variation in natural populations of Trifolium riograndense (Burkart)
This work aimed to characterize and estimate through morphological and agronomic traits the genetic diversity of natural populations of T. riograndense, an important forage legume from native pastures of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Genetic Diversity and Infraspecific Relationships of Trifolium fragiferum L. in Iran
Genetic differentiation was low in the total population, while a high level of gene flow was estimated among populations, and microsatellite markers evidence suggests that two varieties should not remain separated.
Molecular characterization of red clover genotypes utilizing microsatellite markers
Observed groups of genotypes, according to the cluster analyses and PCoA of microsatellite data, could be used in future breeding programs for the selection of germplasm.
Diversity for morphological traits, flowering time and leaf isoflavone content among ecotypes of Trifolium subterraneum L. subsp. yanninicum and their relationships with site of origin
ABSTRACT Trifolium subterraneum L. subsp. yanninicum is a pasture legume that is widely grown in medium and high rainfall areas of southern Australia and shows waterlogging tolerance. This study
Contribution to the knowledge of the genetic diversity and taxonomy of some Iranian Trifolium species
The results confirmed that the Vesicaria and Mistyllus sections are completely separate, and IRAP and SSR genetic markers exhibited significant tree incongruence mainly due to the existence of a different genomic constitution.
Achievements and Challenges in Improving Temperate Perennial Forage Legumes
This work expects genetic gain for yield and other complex traits to accelerate due to progress in genetic resource utilization, genomics resource development, integration of marker-assisted selection with breeding strategies, and trait engineering.
Large variation in waterlogging tolerance and recovery among the three subspecies of Trifolium subterranean L. is related to root and shoot responses
Tolerance to waterlogging and recovery ability was compared among the three subspecies of subterranean clover to identify tolerance mechanisms, in order to guide future subclover breeding activities.


Positive correlations were observed between green and dry matter yields in both years of vegetation, for both groups of ploidy and for diploids and tetraploids.
Selection for persistence in red clover
To increase the persistence of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.), phenotypic recurrent selection was conducted under field conditions and a strain designated as CRS-16 was developed, which has better persistence than the check cultivars and has a more fibrous root system.
Red Clover Science
This book discusses the history of reproductive biology, Genetics, and Evolution, and its role in management, Utilization, Quality, and Antiquality, as well as some of the present and future trends.
Experimental varietal trial plots were established at Grand Rapids in 1998,1999 and 2001 and at Rosemount in 1996, 1999 and 2002; Varietal differences were observed.
Se diferencia morfologicamente de Quinequeli-INIA fundamentalmente por presentar plantas de corona mas ancha, un menor porcentaje de plantas con marcas en las hojas, y menor proporcion of plantas with flores rosado claro.
What is the SAS System
The SAS System is a very large software system for analyzing data that can be used to carry out statistical analyses and produce reports in standard format and perform customized analyses and reports using the SAS language.
