Abstract/Contents:"The breeding and performance of a commercial rhizomatous tall fescue cultivar, Ceres Torpedo, is described. This cultivar is based on Spanish germplasm and differs from cultivars of American origin in a number of aspects including rhizomatous spread. It is very winter active, adapted only to mild winter climates, is similar in turf density to many of the turf cultivars available, is later to flower, is a lighter green colour and has displayed excellent resistance to stem rust (Puccinia graminus) in New Zealand and Australia. Hybrids between this cultivar and American cultivars have exhibited a high degree of F1 sterility. Seed of the cultivar is available with endophyte. Data are presented comparing turf density, winter growth, flowering date, stem rust resistance along with observations on rhizomatous spread."
