Abstract/Contents:"Four Italian ryegrass varieties of different origins and winter hardiness were grown as spaced plants at a lowland and an upland site and subjected to ten managements comprising two nitrogen levels and five autumn cutting treatments. Tiller mortality after the winter of 1971-72 was measured in March and subsequent spring recovery from winter damage in April. Although the winter was not severe, there was considerable winter kill, particularly at the upland site where the most severe treatment combinations killed up to 90% of the plants of the more susceptible varieties. In general, winter kill was increased by raising the level of nitrogen fertilizer and by late or frequent autumn defoliations, and significant interactions between locations and the two treatment factors emphasized the importance of the siting of the experiment. The varieties differed in their overall winter hardiness, with Bb 1430 and RvP suffering less tiller mortality than S22 and Grasslands Paroa in all the treatment combinations, but significant interactions of varieties with locations and cutting treatments revealed that the magnitude of the difference between varieties varied with location and cutting management. Regression analysis of these interactions, however, showed that the tiller mortality of all four varieties increased linearly with the increasing stresses applied by the location x management combinations. There was no differential variety recovery from winter kill, the spring yields being entirely related to the level of tiller mortality experienced. These results are discussed in relation to the breeding of winter hardy varieties, the choice of variety and autumn management practice."
