Citation: STEINER, J.J., BEUSELINCK, P.R. RELEASE NOTICE OF ARS-1207 NARROW LEAF TREFOIL GERMPLASM. GERMPLASM RELEASE. 1999. Interpretive Summary: The United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, in cooperation with the Oregon, Idaho, and Washington Agricultural Experiment Stations has released of ARS-1207 narrowleaf trefoil (Lotus glaber Mill. formerly L. tenuis Waldst. et Kit.) germplasm. Narrow leaf trefoil is a non-bloating forage legume that is adapted to drier soil conditions than birdsfoot trefoil. No other broad genetic base narrowleaf trefoil germplasm or named cultivars are available for breeding and experimental purposes. The merit of ARS-1207 is its broad genetic base that has been compiled into a single source. This enhanced germplasm will allow plant breeders to utilize the diversity of the USDA National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) collection without having to evaluate all accessions.
