Abstract/Contents:"Nine varieties of Italian ryegrass were subjected to two generations of selection for cold tolerance using a controlled environment test. Selection led to a significant overall improvement in average tiller survival from 39路8 to 47路7%, even though the selection intensity achieved was not more than 20%. Although individual varieties varied in initial tolerance from 31路1 to 71路4%, the cold room tests were not sufficiently sensitive to attach significance to differences in response to selection which varied from 0路3 to 17路6%. Agronomic assessment of spaced plants indicated that the winter and spring growth potential of all nine varieties was unaffected by selection for cold tolerance. Although some of the selected populations showed a significant decline in their total yields and persistency, others showed no significant change in these characteristics. The plant breeding implications of these results are discussed."
