Abstract/Contents:"The thousand-seed-weight (TSW) is commonly considered to be 2,0g for Lolium perenne, 0,83g for Festuca rubra, and 0,21g for Poa pratensis. In a study of the TSW in 19 seed lots of turfgrass types of L. perenne, 20 seed lots of F. rubra and 16 seed lots of P. pratensis the average TSW of these species was found to be 1,720g, 0,786g and 0,300g, respectively. Within each species the seed lots in the study represented 4, 4 and 5 cultivars of L. perenne, F. rubra and P. pratensis, respectively. The TSW varied significantly among cultivars within species as well as among seed lots within cultivars. Among all seed lots within a species the TSW varied from 1,381g to 1,906g for L. perenne, from 0,674g to 0,883g for F. rubra and from 0,217g to 0,365g for P. pratensis. In order to optimize the composition of seed mixtures it is important to know the exact TSW of the applied seed lots. It is suggested, that the commonly used TSW may generally be to [too] high for L. perenne and to [too] low for P. pratensis."
