Abstract

We had three goals in this series of studies. We wished to 1) determine the extent of genetic variability and broad sense heritability for Ca, Mg and K concentrations in these forage grasses, 2) obtain an estimate of the relative magnitude of genotype x environment interaction, and 3) develop a breeding and selection program for lines having reduced tetany potential (RTP) indices.
