Abstract/Contents:"Italian, perennial, hybrid ryegrass, tall fescue and cocksfoot were used to determine the influence of the weather upon grass growth. Throughout the spring and summer months of 1975 and 1976, weather conditions were monitored. Crop growth rate, leaf extension rate, leaf appearance rate and tillering were recorded. Natural (control), covered and irrigated treatments were applied. In spring, crop growth rates were correlated with solar radiation and temperature, but growth rates were greatest at high levels of insolation. Leaf extension rate was associated with temperature during spring. But during summer this association between temperature and leaf extension became confused as soil water deficit increased. Leaf extension rate in the tall fescue variety S170 was the slowest of all for a given temperature. In 1975 leaf growth was very sensitive to temperature; the rate of leaf appearance increased as temperature increased. In 1976 water deficit reduced crop growth rate in spring, and the major factor influencing crop growth rates in all varieties during summer. Leaf extension and leaf appearance rate were both reduced by increasing soil water deficit. The ryegrasses appeared most sensitive to drought and poor recovery growth was found in the Italian RvP and the hybrid Snowdon."
