Abstract/Contents:Ten grass mixtures and two monocultures were sown in autumn 1978 or spring 1979 (S1 and S2) at three sites. Eight mixtures consisted of Lolium perenne (as Aberystwyth S.23 or Manhattan) with either Festuca rubra/Agrostis castellana or Poa pratensis. They were compared with (i) L. perenne monocultures, (ii) a mixture of P. pratensis and Phleum pratense, and (iii) a general-purpose mixture containing all 5 species. Football-type artificial wear was applied simultaneously to the S1 and S2 swards which were 13-14 and 4-5 months old, respectively, when wear started. The younger S2 swards started to show damage sooner than the older S1 swards. Also, F. rubra, A. castellana and P. pratensis were more seriously damaged relative to L. perenne in S2 than in S1. In the older S1 swards, mixtures sown with 20% L. perenne were apparently superior to those with 60%, and F. rubra/A. castellana were superior to P. pratensis as companion species for L. perenne. In the younger S2 swards, live cover after wear was primarily related to the amount of L. perenne before wear. Mixtures with Manhattan were consistently superior to those with Aberystwyth S.23.
