Abstract/Contents:"Lamina wettability, assessed using water droplet contact-angle and surface water-retention measurements on excised leaves, was examined in Lolium perenne cv. Melle, cv. Condesa and an indigenous population from an old pasture, Holcus lanatus, Poa trivialis and Agrostis stolonifera. The species fell into two significantly distinct categories, those with unwettable laminae, namely H. lanatus and A. stolonifera, and those with highly wettable laminae, P. trivialis and the three L. perenne populations. There was no significant difference between the L. perenne populations, which had the most wettable laminae overall. The possible implication of these differences in lamina wettability on animal production is discussed."
