Selection and stability of synthetic varieties of Lolium perenne

  title={Selection and stability of synthetic varieties of Lolium perenne},
  author={Mike D. Hayward and Ismail bin Haji Abdullah},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
The performance of three experimental cultivars of Lolium perenne selected for yield or water soluble carbohydrate content was monitored over four generations of seed multiplication under relaxed selection. In each variety the selected trait regressed towards that of the base population from which the selection line derived. This could be accounted for by residual genetic variation within the lines for the selected trait, and in some instances, by association of this variation with the fitness… CONTINUE READING
