1 = elite cultivated genotypes from commercial USA breeding programs; 2 = non-elite cultivated genotypes; 3 = non-cultivated, wild germplasm.

FGI =Forage Genetics International; C/W = Cal/West Seeds; Pioneer = Pioneer Hi-bred, Inc.; DL = Dairyland, Inc.; INRA = French National Institute for Agricultural Research; NPGS = National Plant Germplasm System, United States Department of Agriculture.

*Fall dormancy based on the scale of 1 = very fall dormant to 11 = very non-dormant [23].
