Progress and Benefits to Humanity from Breeding Cool-Season Grasses for Turf1
Dramatic progress continues to be made in the genetic improvement of a number of cool-season grasses used for turf and conservation. Attractive, durable, persistent cultivars with improved pest resistance, increased stress tolerance, and reduced maintenance requirements are becoming available to the American public. Such cultivars are becoming increasingly important in programs to enhance our physical environment, conserve our soil and water resources, and provide recreation. Advances in both the sciences and art of plant breeding and in associated disciplines are making turfgrass breeders more effective in meeting the needs and wants of humanity.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
