Abstract/Contents:Explores the field of innovative grass breeding as of 1988, listing cultivar developments, cultivar availability, and improved breeding methods as primary objectives. Details various scientific findings based on innovative breeding techniques, highlighting pearl millet breeding procedures, as well as the screening and intermating process of Pensacola bahiagrass. Discusses the development of the Recurrent Restricted Phenotypic Selection (RRPS) breeding method to enhance forage yield. Reports that "RRPS has greatly increased the frequency of yield genes (any yield genes that increase the yield potential of the plants)" and presents a graph depicting improved yields in RRPS populations of Pensacola bahiagrass.
