These results are compared with those from a rapid haematoxylin stain test. The relationship between the haematoxylin stain test results and performance in the field was also determined. The dry matter yields in solution culture confirmed tolerances previously reported for the non‐Australian cultivars, with only two exceptions. The Australian varieties vary in… CONTINUE READING
