    Medicago sativa, alfalfa or lucerne, and M. arborea were considered reproductively isolated until recently.

SOME FACTORS THAT AFFECT POLLINATION AND SEED FORMATION IN ALFALFA, MEDICAGO SATIVA L. INTRODUCTION Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is one of the most important forage crops in the world.

Even though this plant species has been cultivated for centuries, many problems regarding its management and culture are yet to be solved.

Some factors that affect pollination and seed formation in alfalfa, Medicago sativa L. Abstract. Graduation date: The objectives of this study were (a) to measure the amount\ud of cross-pollination caused by three bee species at 10, 20 and 40\ud rods distance from a foreign pollen source, (b) to measure the effects\ud of bee species.

In this article we compare the potential impact of self-pollination on seed set in alfalfa, Medicago sativa L. (Leguminosae), at high versus low flower standing crops. Alfalfa flowers are organized in racemes of ≈+ buds that open over the course of ≈1 wk (McGregor ; unpublished data).Cited by: Some factors that affect pollination and seed formation in alfalfa, Medicago sativa L.

As a general rule, growers try to place at least one bee domicile for every 3 to 4 ha. Four to fi ve gallons of bees (1 gallon = approximat bees) are utilized for each acre. Flower development, pollination, and fertilization are important stages in the sexual reproduction process of plants; they are also critical steps in the control of seed formation and development.

Abstract: Provision of pollinators is the most important moments for alfalfa productivity. Honeybee, due to its abundance and mobility is a significant pollinator in the production of alfalfa seed.

Problems that arise in pollination of alfalfa led many researchers to pay attention to the pollination of this : Bekele Mechalu. Insect Pollinators and Foraging Behavior of Honey Bees on Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) in Saudi Arabia.

The study aimed to evaluate the impact of phosphorus fertilization and honeybee pollination on alfalfa seed production. The experiment was divided into 9 treatments of open pollination, honeybee pollination, and non-pollination with three different levels (0, or kg P 2O 5 /ha/year) of triple super by: 3.

Alfalfa (Medicago sativa, lucerne) is a herbaceous perennial legume used primarily as a hay crop and has a high feeding value. In many regions it is a key component of cropping systems valued for its deep roots and its contribution to soil fertility because of nitrogen fixation, and it is established from seeds.

There is some evidence that alfalfa may act like estrogen, and this might affect the pregnancy. Auto-immune Diseases: Alfalfa might cause the immune system to become more active, and this could increase the symptoms of these : Tracheophytes.

Production of Mn-P in alfalfa, howeven, in most cases adversely affected plant growth and development. Affected plants were stunted with yellowing foliage, but survived and produced seed.

Results from field trials showed that Mn-P production in transgenic alfalfa reduced dry matter yield and plant by:   Cytoembryological Analysis Of Causes For Poor Seed Set in Alfalfa (Medicago Sativa L.) Poor seed set is a limiting factor in alfalfa br eeding, as it slows the selection response.

One strategy used to overcome this problem is to search for mutations of inflorescence morphology. Long-peduncle (lp), branched-raceme (br) and top-flowering (tf) inflorescence. The vesicular‐arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizal status of three alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) nodulation genotypes (nod + fix +, nod + fix − and nod − fix −) was investigated using pot cultures of three fungal species from two genera (Glomus monosporum Gerd.& Trappe, Glomus fasciculatum (Thaxter) Gerd.

Walker & Koske and Gigaspora margarita Becker & Hall).Cited by:   Soil salinity is an important factor affecting growth, development, and productivity of almost all land plants, including the forage crop alfalfa (Medicago sativa). However, little is known about how alfalfa responds and adapts to salt stress, particularly among different salt-tolerant cultivars.

Among seven alfalfa cultivars, we found that Zhongmu-1 (ZM) is relatively Cited by: Demand for better adapted, disease- and insect-resistant cvs has prompted extensive alfalfa breeding programs. Medicago sativa easily hybridizes with Medicago falcata (which is sometimes treated as a subspecies of M.

There are 77 cultivars that have been registered in the country, these include 36 cultivars bred through breeding programs, 17 introduced from overseas, 5 domesticated from wild ecotypes, and 19 through regional collection/breeding by: Seeds of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L., cultivar Nubaria 1) were procured from El-Nubaria, El-Behira Governorate, Egypt.

Data from embryological studies during the first 6 days after self- and cross-pollination of some once inbred plants of lucerne are presented and analysed statistically.

A mature plant will tiller from the base, sending up multiple stems that are ascending or erect and branch occasionally. The stems are usually hairless, particularly as they become older.

Glyphosate-tolerant alfalfa (GTA) was developed to withstand over-the-top applications of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup agricultural herbicides. As a part of the safety assessment, GTA (designated J × J) was grown under controlled field conditions at geographically diverse locations within the United States during the and field.

Seed storage proteins were analysed in 27 varieties of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.); these included five subspecies (glomerata, caerulea, falcata, hemicycla, praefalcata), seven of the nine sources of Medicago germplasm introduced into North America and a sample of additional cultivars.

The protein patterns were remarkably consistent for all of. INTRODUCTION.

The potential environmental risks of transgene exposure are not clear for alfalfa (Medicago sativa subsp. sativa), a perennial crop that is cross-pollinated by gathered data on feral alfalfa in major alfalfa seed-production areas in the western United States to (1) evaluate evidence that feral transgenic plants spread transgenes and (2) determine environmental and Cited by: Nye, W.

There is considerable debate over the capacity of the cell wall polymer lignin to incorporate unnatural monomer units.

To discover the effect of environmental factors on pollinator visitation to flowering Medicago sativa, several field experiments were designed to examine the diurnal movement patterns of wild bee species in the Hexi Corridor of northwestern China. Our study results showed that Megachile abluta, M.

They will land on flowers and some of the pollen will stick to their legs. When they go to another flower, some of the pollen drops off of the bees legs. That is how pollination occurs.

Studies on alfalfa, Medicago sativa, have shown that honey bees vary in their ability to discriminate between white- and purple-flowered plants (Clement, ) but that leaf-cutting bees prefer to Cited by: Factors that affect alfalfa seed yields / (Fort Collins, Colo.: Agricultural Experiment Station of the Agricultural College of Colorado, ), by Philo Kneeland Blinn (page images at HathiTrust) Alfalfa seed growing and the weather with particular reference to conditions in Utah / (Logan: Utah Agricultural College Experiment Station, alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) perennial, erect.

Accurate separation of cultivars and assignment of fall dormancy class (FDC) is best obtained by testing for two years at three locations. In outcrossing crops like alfalfa, various bee species can contribute to pollination and gene flow in seed production fields.

With the increasing use of transgenic crops, it becomes important to determine the role of these distinct pollinators on alfalfa pollination and gene flow.

POLLINATION is usually a critical step in crop production in temperate as well as in tropical regions, although some crops set fruit parthenocarpically [i.e., without pollination and thus without seed set, e.g., in banana, Musa spp., and pineapple, Ananas comosus (L.)
