Selection of regenerative genotypes from highly productive cultivars of alfalfa

  title={Selection of regenerative genotypes from highly productive cultivars of alfalfa},
  author={Sherry L. Matheson and Jerzy Nowak and Nancy L. MacLean},
Seedlings from Canadian alfalfa cultivars Algonquin and Apica were selected on the basis of ability to regenerate plants from hypocotyl callus. A total of eleven genotypes were selected, resulting in regeneration frequencies of 4.5 and 11.7% for Algonquin and Apica, respectively. Regeneration capacity within these cultivars was also compared with cultivars and breeding lines for which regeneration frequencies have previously been documented. Two genotypes (A1 93 and Ap 20) exhibited prolific… CONTINUE READING
