Inheritance of ovule number in diploid alfalfa



Inheritance of ovule number in diploid alfalfa



Crop Sci 3(6): 499-504



Significant differences for average ovule number per floret were found among plants of both tetraploid and diploid alfalfa. Diploid alfalfa plants were grouped into 5 phenotypic classes on the basis of average ovule number per floret. Average ovule numbers of the 5 classes were approximately 7.0, 8.5, 10.0, 11.5, and 13.0. Genetic studies indicated that ovule number in diploid alfalfa was controlled by 4 genes. Three of the genes (Ov1, Ov2, and Ov3) showed complete or nearly complete dominance while the 4th gene, Ov4, clearly expressed a degree of incomplete dominance. Genetic effects of all 4 loci controlling ovule number were additive.
