Abstract/Contents:"Turf grasses are a major seed market in Europe. The availability of numerous species makes possible to meet the expectations of a wide range of uses and users. Breeding of turf species is very active in Europe and worldwide and, leads to the release of many new and innovative varieties. Genetic improvements for tiller density, leaf size (Sampoux et al, 2010), general merit, and disease resistance have been achieved in many turf species. Since 1980, turf varieties are listed in a national catalogue with a mandatory evaluation of the Value for Cultivation and Use (VCU). Turf varieties are evaluated by field trials run under the supervision of the Groupe dEtude et de contr√Ēle des Vari√≥t√©s et des Semences (GEVES) and their registration in the national catalogue is decided by the Comit√© Technique Permanent de la S√©lection (CTPS). National Registration is a step towards registration into the European Common Catalogue. Until 2007, trials were run only on French territory with marked and steady improvements in breeding. In 2008 a turf testing network run by GEVES-CTPS was established at European scale with the objectives of further stimulating progress in developing genetic quality in turf, exploiting the information from a larger network, and assessing the suitability of variety by geographic region. In meeting these goals a similar chance will be given to all breeding companies. Data from the turf evaluation will be used for VCU decisions by the CTPS, and to provide independent and reliable information to end-users. The extended network added six more sites for variety testing."
