Comparison of Some Exotic Lucerne (Medicago sativa) Genotypes for Green Fodder Yield

Syed Sadaqat Mehdi, Muhammad Ahsan and Iftikhar Ahmad Khan


There was significant variability found for plant height and green fodder yield among forty-eight genotypes of Lucerne. Moderate coefficients of variation and high heritability estimates for plant height and green fodder yield among the Lucerne genotypes suggested that a greater improvement is possible by hybridizing groups-I (Beaver, E-542 genotypes), group-II (GR 793, Russian #36, 75-527) and group-III (African Pop, GR 692, Griamn-2, Hunter River) which may produce better segregants for increased green fodder yield.
