From the 4th – eighth of September 2011, the Eucarpia Fodder vegetation and Amenity Grasses part, held its twenty ninth assembly within the atmosphere of Dublin fort in eire. The topic of the assembly was once ‘Breeding innovations for sustainable forage and turf grass improvement’. Grasslands hide an important share of the land mass of the area, and play a pivotal position in international meals construction. while we're confronted with numerous demanding situations that have an effect on the best way we expect approximately this invaluable set of assets. The inhabitants of the realm is predicted to exceed nine billion via 2050, and elevate of approximately one 3rd relative to today’s degrees. This inhabitants elevate can be targeted in city parts, and in what are at the moment considered as “developing” international locations, which means that the procuring energy of this elevated inhabitants might be better – transferring the stability of call for from staple vegetation to excessive price goods corresponding to meat and dairy items. total that the area must nearly double agricultural output throughout all different types of meals to satisfy the calls for of this better, urbanised inhabitants. this is often happening opposed to a backdrop of both huge demanding situations by way of worldwide weather switch. Agriculture is already an important contributor to e.g. greenhouse gasoline emissions, deforestation and soil erosion. the location is made extra advanced by way of an elevated emphasis on biofuels as an answer for our coming near near oil scarcity, leading to elevated pageant among land utilised for foodstuff and gasoline. in brief, agriculture needs to proceed to feed the area, while now not contributing to destructive it extra. It has to be sustainable. Plant breeding performs an important yet usually understated position in assembly the demanding situations awarded through this complicated and altering situation. besides the fact that, plant breeding and development is itself present process radical switch pushed via expertise. This publication explores how forage and turf breeding is altering and adapting to satisfy those demanding situations utilizing the technological advances being skilled in plant breeding as a whole.

One of the key objectives is to improve nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in the rumen through the breeding of new forage grasses to improve protein utilisation. Previously it has been shown that feeding ryegrasses with higher water soluble carbohydrate content leads to improved rumen efficiency and evidence suggests that this results in increased meat and milk production and reduced nitrogen losses with lower ammonia and nitrous oxide emissions through improved protein utilisation.
