Abstract/Contents:"A study was made of the fate of tillers arising at different times in the autumn and the contribution which these tillers made to the final seed yield of single spaced plants of perennial ryegrass planted at different dates for seed production. The flexibility in tiller function and in seed-bearing capacity exhibited within these plants resulted in October-planted material producing as much seed in the following harvest-year as August-planted material, although the latter had twice as many living tillers per plant at harvest. This reproductive versatility has economic importance and may have biological significance in certain ecological conditions."
