30-30 Q

1. 30-30 Q is a synthetic variety with 185 parent plants that were selected sequentially for multifoliolate leaf expression and for resistance to Phytophthora root rot, Aphanomyces root rot, and anthracnose. Parent plants were selected from crosses between selections from three-year old Wisconsin nursery selection from various populations. Nursery source plants were derived from various populations that were developed by phenotypic recurrent selection for high relative feed value (using Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy), and for resistance to one or more of the following pests: bacterial wilt, Fusarium Wilt, Verticillium wilt, Phytophthora root rot, Aphanomyces root rot, anthracnose (race 1), Leptosphaerulina leafspot, and stem nematode. Parentage of 30-30 Q traces to the following germplasm sources: 9326, DK 142, Abound, and miscellaneous Cal/West Seeds breeding populations. Breeder seed (Syn.1) was produced under cage isolation near Woodland, California in 2000.

2. 30-30 Q is adapted to the North Central, East Central, and Great Plains areas of the U.S. and is intended for use in the North Central, East Central, Great Plains, and Winterhardy Intermountain areas of the U.S.. 30-30 Q has been tested in Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Nebraska, and Indiana.

3. 30-30 Q is a dormant variety with fall dormancy similar to FD class 3 check varieties. Flower color observed in the Syn.2 generation is approximately 100% purple with a trace of variegated, white, cream, and yellow.

4. 30-30 Q has high resistance to anthracnose (race 1), bacterial wilt, Fusarium wilt, Verticillium wilt, Phytophthora root rot, and Aphanomyces root rot (race 1), and resistance to pea aphid and spotted alfalfa aphid. Reaction to the blue alfalfa aphid, stem nematode, and root knot nematode has not been tested.

5. Seed increase of 30-30 Q is on a limited generation basis with two generations each of breeder, foundation, and certified seed classes. Breeder (Syn.1 or Syn.2), foundation (Syn.2 or Syn.3), and certified (Syn.3 or Syn.4) classes will be recognized. Production of Syn.2 breeder or Syn.3 foundation seed requires consent of the breeder. Breeder seed was produced under cage isolation near Woodland, California in 2000. Sufficient foundation seed for the projected life of the variety will be maintained by Cal/West Seeds. Stands of foundation and certified seed fields are limited to 3 and 6 years, respectively.

6. Certified seed of 30-30 Q will be available in 2006.

7. No decision has been made regarding Plant Variety Protection.
