In 2000, seven trials were conducted in order to assess silage potential of lines that are under development in the UW silage breeding program.
|EXPTLH198||Evaluation of S2 lines from WQS C1 topcrossed to LH198.|
|EXPTLH223||Evaluation of S3+ lines from WFISIHI, WFISILO, and WQS C0 topcrossed to LH223.|
|EXPTR227B77||Evaluation of elite S3+ lines from WQS C0 topcrossed to R227 and B77. Inbreds R227 and B77 were chosen based on rapid digestion kinetics (Jung et al., 1998).|
|ADVANCED||Evaluation of elite S4+ lines from WFISIHI, WFISILO, and WQS C0, topcrossed to LH198.|
|PRELIM||Evaluation of elite S2 to S3 lines from WQS C0 and several GEM breeding populations topcrossed to LH198.|
|MISC||Every breeder has one of these trials. A few odds and ends.|
|GEM||Evaluation of several new GEM lines topcrossed to LH185 and LH198.|
