Abstract/Contents:"The Federal Plant Variety Office, an independent, senior federal authority under the supervision of the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, is responsible for granting of Plant Breeders Rights, the registration of varieties in the National List and representation in plant variety and seed affairs on an international level. Since the end of the 1960s, the Federal Plant Variety Office has been performing official tests of turf grass varieties under defined conditions and management systems. These management systems include lawns for home use, sports turfs, golf greens, and general landscape use. If the varieties successfully pass the required tests for Distinctness, Uniformity and Stability, the results of the trials are published biennially in a Descriptive Variety List. In this study the results of the past 25 years of tests (1982-2008) were examined to document trends in turf grass breeding. The most important turf grass species in Germany, Lolium perenne L., Festuca rubra ssp. and Poa pratensis, were assessed to document trends in turf grass breeding. The study focused on characteristics affecting the quality of turf grass under lawn use and wear treatments."
