Abstract New Zealand pastures are generally deficient in clover content due in part to root‐invading nematodes. A recurrent selection programme for resistance to the clover root‐knot nematode (Meloidogyne trifoliophila) assessed individual white clover (Trifolium repens) genotypes for the number of root galls and root dry weight. Low galling (resistant) and a few high galling (susceptible) genotypes were crossed to provide divergent selections and progeny screened. In the sixth generation, the… Expand
