Interspecific hybridization of tetraploid kura clover trifolium ambiguum m. bieb. and white clover trifolium repens l. using ovule culture



Interspecific hybridization of tetraploid kura clover trifolium ambiguum m. bieb. and white clover trifolium repens l. using ovule culture



Grassland Science 35(3): 180-185



Two interspecific hybrid plants between tetraploid Trifolium ambiguum M. BIEB. (2n = 4x = 32) and T. repens L. (2n = 32) were produced by the ovule culture technique. The hybrid plants were intermediate between the T. ambiguum and T. repens parents in morphological traits. Their hybridity was confirmed by isozyme analysis. However the field performance of the hybrid plants was very poor in comparison with the parent plants. Moreover, the hybrid plants were highly sterile, and a few back-crossed seeds with T. repens were produced, and only one of them grew into whole plant. The present study suggested the possibility of transfer of valuable traits from T. ambiguum to T. repens.
