Red clover (Trifolium pratense) clones, either resistant or susceptible to red clover vein mosaic virus, were intercrossed to study the mode of inheritance of resistance to this virus. Evaluation of parental, F1, F2, and backcross and other populations, indicated that the resistant reaction was controlled by a single dominant gene, Rc.
