Learn more about our research! Two new research articles from our group have been published in Crop Science. Yinjie Qiu and co-authors have published an article on DNA content and ploidy estimation in sheep fescue, and Garett Heineck and co-authors have published an article on the endophyte Epichloë festucae and crown rust in perennial ryegrass.
The first article is Open Access, meaning that online access is free to everyone. Below we also have listed previous blog posts from our site by these authors on the same topics. Visit our Research Publications page for even more research articles by our group.
