 Ovule sterility was found to be associated with callose deposition in B17, a plant with low fertility from the alfalfa cv Blazer XL. The site of callose deposition, which began during embryo-sac development and affected 81% of the ovules in mature florets, at random positions in the ovary, appeared to be the embryo-sac wall or the integumentary tapetum. The fertile ovules of B17 transmitted the ovule-sterility trait to the progenies, thereby demonstrating a sporophytic genetic control. B17 was… CONTINUE READING
