Abstract/Contents:"In 1975 and 1976 sports field experiments were performed in which some varieties of Lolium perenne were submitted to various treatments; their influence was measured both on tiller number and on tiller type. Variety and cutting regime had a distinct influence on the tiller density; the effects of other treatments were less important. Next to normal vegetative and generative shoots Lolium perenne produces under certain conditions too special types of tillers, viz.: - Secondary tillers, mostly vegetative, on the raised nodes of fertile shoots, and - Partly elongated vegetative shoots, with or without secondary vegetative tillers. If present, many of these tillers are elongated once again. In case of cutting at a height of a few centimeters the fertile shoot itself is lost. Frequent defoliation, however, results in a restriction of the elongation of the internodia, so that the secondary tillers of fertile shoots will saand [sand] the mowing action. This also applied to the elongated vegetative shoots with their secondary tillers. Elongated shoots generally have a bad reputation for they are frost susceptible. The independently rooting secondary tillers sunk to the soil surface, however, have equal chance as normal vegetative tillers to survive winter time. Besides, they are able to fill up open patches, as their sidelong movement amounts to several centimeters per year. Their significance, therefore, is greater than has been previously supposed. The persistency of a variety probably is connected with this phenomenon."
