Abstract/Contents:Artificially hardened seedlings of 10 timothy cv., 6 meadow fescue cv., 8 tall fescue cv. and 8 perennial ryegrass cv. were exposed to -12 deg C for 16 h, while seedlings of 11 cocksfoot cv. were exposed to -10 deg for 16 h. Cold tolerance expressed as percentage plant survival was 98-89% in Timothy, 94-68% in meadow fescue, 50-25% in tall fescue, 34-11% in perennial ryegrass and 73-16% in cocksfoot. The treatment was not severe enough to detect differences among timothy cv. Cold tolerance of adult plants showed the same ranking as for seedlings except in cocksfoot. In general, Scandinavian and Canadian cv. were hardy, Japanese cv. moderately hardy and UK and S. European cv. tender.
