An objective of our breeding programmes is to develop cultivars of Lolium perenne for turf use that have enhanced green colour through changed senescence patterns. Genotypes of Festuca pratensis that carry genetic deficiencies for chlorophyll breakdown have been identified. Carriers express the phenotypes known as stay-green or non-yellowing. F. pratensis can be hybridized with and backcrossed to L. perenne.
