Abstract/Contents:"Opportunities for improving warm-season grasses are almost unlimited. Significant progress can be made in improving dry matter yield and distribution. Development of cultivars that use nutrients more efficiently should probably receive more emphasis in the future. Pest resistance will continue to be an important objective of forage breeding programs. Improvements in quality offer the greatest opportunities for producing superior forage cultivars in the future. Forage quality can be affected by such characters as dry matter digestibility, lignin and lignin arrangement, pest resistance and palability."
