Variation in the magnesium content of grasses and its improvement by selection



Variation in the magnesium content of grasses and its improvement by selection



Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture 32(10): 990-991



Eleven varieties of Lolium multiflorum showed only small differences in magnesium content but there was considerable variation between genotypes within varieties. After three cycles of selection, lines selected for high magnesium content showed an increase of 35% in magnesium content compared with the control variety RVP. Lines selected for low magnesium content showed a decrease of 24%.
