Abstract/Contents:"Turf grass species are among the topics of forage grass breeding in Czechoslovakia at present. Breeding goals, however, are highly differentiated, and testing methods have to be adjusted to that diversity of purposes. Agrostis tenuis Sibth., 'Golf' variety, is a perennial turf grass which forms short stolons. Tiller formation has been 263/dm2 on average over several years. Its colour is deep green, and the grass is unpretentious in terms of nutrition and soil. Mean root expansibility is 6.9 per cent , mean tensile strength 3,249 kg/cm2, and the average compressive strength 112,768 gcm/cm3. Frequent deep mowing is well tolerated. Variety 'K 7' of Festuca rubra ssp. rubra is another perennial bunch grass, short but with no stolons. It is a turf type as well. Tiller formation has been 219/dm2 on average over several years. It is deep green in colour and comparatively unpretentious. The average expansibility of the two-year roots is 10.3 per cent, while the mean tensile strength is 2,275 kg/cm2 and compressive strength 132,577 gcm/cm3. Both species are highly suitable for sod formation.
