Abstract/Contents:"Reproductive traits of forage and turf plants have not been significantly improved because the end products of both forage and turf are not the seed; consequently research on reproduction has not received much attention. However, no variety can be successful if it is not a good seed producer. New interest for reproduction research may be brought about by the need for gene containment of transgenic forage cultivars. From flower induction to seed maturation, the scope of molecular reproduction research is wide even for forage crops, because it can help improve biomass yield and quality, modify the growth habit, exploit heterosis, improve fertility, seed yield and seed quality, and control gene flow from transgenic crops. Apomixis reseach, which employs some forage species as model organisms, holds promise to provide tools for increased progress in agriculture. This review summarizes the current knowledge on the molecular aspects of reproduction in forage and turf plants. Studies on model plants that may be applicable to forage and turf species will also be referred to."
