Abstract/Contents:Provides a brief report on research conducted at the United States Regional Pasture Research Laboratory in University Park, Pennsylvania during 1987. Reports that "we have used recurrent phenotypic selection to develop a population of orchardgrass with resistance to purple leaf spot...and smooth bromegrass with resistance to brown leaf spot." Details the materials and methods used in the studies, stating that "forage yield and quality of orchardgrass were determined from nurseries harvested at approximately 7-day intervals...for 3 years." Mentions ongoing research during 1988, explaining their attempt "to validate the A/B gene model of Taliaferro and Bashaw for inheritance of apomixis in buffelgrass."
