The production of forage seed for use in the eastern United States is a large industry in Utah and other Western States. The development or forage synthetics in the east with production or seed in the west raises the questions “Is there a change in the synthetic when seed is produced under different environmental conditions?” To obtain information relating to genetic stability of grass and legume seed crops produced under various environmental conditions, the USDA-ARS Crops Research Division, Forage and Range Research Branch, Foundation Seed Production Section, set up several experimental plots in the western United States. These are located in Washington, Utah, Texas, and California.
