USGA Summary Points:Seed production remains an important target for genetic improvement efforts in prairie junegrass. Ploidy differences between European and North American collections prevent combining useful traits from these populations. We used colchicine to overcome the ploidy barrier between the two collections, and future research will focus on verification of ploidy.
