Seeds of varieties with high seed yield potential usually have been less expensive than varieties with low seed yield potential. Therefore, experiments were conducted to determine: (a) whether associations between seed production potential and morphological or physiological plant characteristics exist, and (b) if such associations are of sufficient magnitude to use to identify plants having both desirable forage and seed production potential.
