Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by Iowa State University to improve varieties of orchardgrass, red canarygrass, smooth bromegrass, and tall fescue through breeding. Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that bi-directional individual-plant selection, visual evaluation, and dry-weight yield analysis were used to assess quality in experimental varieties. Reports an 8 percent decrease in forage yield of a six-clone synthetic of smooth bromegrass between the first and second generations, a record high ranking of reed canarygrass selections in average in vitro dry-matter digestibility, and less forage yield in orchardgrass populations derived for late maturity and low canopy height. Concludes that "work on orchardgrass is being emphasized" and that tall fescue populations are in development for analysis.
