Genetics of resistance and susceptibility in alfalfa to alfalfa sick soil



Genetics of resistance and susceptibility in alfalfa to alfalfa sick soil



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 58(4): 945-952



Lucerne sickness in central Alta. is characterized by yellowed, stunted and poorly nodulated seedlings. Lucerne seedlings were grown on "sick soil" in a growth room and evaluated for height, disease rating and yield of dry matter during 3 cycles of selection. Results showed that recurrent phenotypic selection was an effective breeding method to increase resistance.
