Abstract

Breeding tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) with low alkaloid concentration may select for tall fescue plants that are antagonistic towards Neotyphodium coenophialum (Morgan-Jones and Gams) Glenn, Bacon, and Hanlin, comb. nov. The objectives of this study were to determine the relationship between plant mass and endophyte mycelial proteins versus ergot alkaloid concentration.
