Drought Induced Increase in Quercetin Glycosides is Associated with Drought Resistance in a Novel White Clover Population

White clover is an important forage legume in temperate pastures, but does not have sufficient resistance against drought stress. Quercetin is a flavonol conferring plant sunscreen and anti-oxidant properties under UV-B stress with a trade-off of reduced biomass. An F1 full-sib cross between stress tolerant and stress sensitive white clover genotypes showed the ability to increase Q accumulation associated to maintenance of dry matter yield under a near wilting drought.
