Research Project: PLANT SELECTION WITHIN SYN1 TALL FESCUE

Location: Forage and Livestock Production Unit

Project Number: 6218-21610-001-06
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2011
End Date: Jun 01, 2014

Objective:
The project will involve individual plant selection for disease resistance within a tall fescue population known as SYN1 for the purpose of potential cultivar development.

Approach:
Provide selection of disease resistant (rust) individuals from within the tall fescue population SYN1. Remove and increase seed of individuals exhibiting disease resistance (rust) in Oregon. Prepare and provide area for germination and selection of individual plant selections from within the SYN1 tall fescue population in Oregon and Oklahoma. Provide individual or bulk seed selections for the execution of performance trials in Oregon, Oklahoma, or other regions of interest.
