Progeny of crosses among nine clones derived from hybrids of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) and annual ryegrass (Loliurn multiflorum Lam.) were studied for perloline content. The data were analyzed by a modified partial diallel analysis. The results suggest that perloline is controlled primarily by a few major genes, with a high degree of dominance for low peroline. However, some genes with smaller effects may exist.
