Abstract/Contents:"Because of high intensity of use or turfs in a state of neglect, undesirable herbs and grasses compete with desirable turf species. Mostly management strategies against these undesirable species are just practised when they dominate the sward. Additional preventive steps are difficult because there is a lack of knowledge about the germination behavior of such turf weeds. The influence of controlled environmental conditions on the germination of ten undesirable herbs and grasses (Bromus hordeaceus, Capsella bursapastoris, Cerastium holosteoides, Leontodon autumnalis, Matricaria discoidea, Plantago jajor, Poa annua, Polygonum aviculare, Ranunculus acris, Ranunculus repens) was studied experimentally in relation to germination temperature, cold stratification, light, nitrate and water stress. To the majority of the examined species light and nitrate were the most important variable measured, except for Bromus hordeaceus. This supports germination in vegetation gaps."
