Abstract/Contents:"In France, seed production is becoming a main objective for plant breeders as it is the key for commerical success of turfgrass cultivars. Research work with tall fescue seed production has been reported, but nothing has been published for red fescue, one of the most important turfgrass [turfgrass] species in France and in Europe. An experiment with 17 populations and cultivars of Festuca nigrescens Lam. (chewing fescue) was laid out in 1999, at Lusignan INRA station where seed yield and several components of seed yield were measured. Characteristics reported include heading date, number, and weight of panicles and seeds, panicle length and 1000-seed weight,. Total seed weight was significantly and positively correlated with 1000-seed weight, seed per panicle, panicle length and panicle weight. The present study contributed to a better knowledge of relationships among characters involved in seed production. Heritabilities of these components needs to be determined as an indication that breeding may lead to seed production improvement, with all fine-leaved fescue used for turfgrass purposes."
