This publication comprises papers offered on the 2015 assembly of the Fodder vegetation and Amenity Grasses component of Eucarpia. The topic of the assembly “Breeding in a global of shortage” was once elaborated in 4 classes: (1) shortage of average assets, (2) shortage of breeders, (3) shortage of land and (4) shortage of concentration. elements I to IV of this publication correspond to those 4 periods. consultation 1 refers back to the effects of weather swap, diminished entry to normal assets and declining freedom in utilizing them. Plant breeding can help via constructing types with a extra effective use of water and foodstuff and a greater tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses. consultation 2 refers back to the shrinking variety of box breeders. there's a desire for a mutual empathy among box- and lab-oriented breeding actions, integrating new equipment of phenotyping and genotyping. consultation three underscores the optimum use of agricultural land. Forage has to be intensively produced in a sustainable method, assembly the strength, protein and health and wellbeing requisites of farm animals. Well-adapted kinds, species and combinations of grasses and legumes are wanted. consultation four refers back to the fading of concentration in basic creation brought on through a variety of societal calls for. There are few farmers left and they're requested to satisfy many shopper calls for. either large-scale, multi-purpose species and types and really good area of interest plants are required. half V summarizes the conclusions of 2 open debates, operating crew conferences and workshops held throughout the convention. The debates have been dedicated to the way forward for grass and fodder crop breeding, and to feed caliber breeding and trying out. The convention hosted conferences of the operating teams “Multisite rust overview” and “Festulolium”. Workshops considering “genomic choice and organization mapping” and on “phenotyping” with purposes in useful breeding examine. half V includes additionally brief sketches of breeding ideas presented as brief communications.

Barth Abstract One of the most damaging foliar diseases on perennial ryegrass is crown rust, caused by Puccinia coronata f. sp. lolli. Crown rust causes severe losses to yield and quality of forage and results in decreased palatability and digestibility for ruminants. Crown rust was scored in 1800 individually spaced plants in two replicates on a scale of 1 (no infection) to 9 (severely infected) at three time points (June, August & September 2014) in a block design experiment. These 1800 individuals represent 30 populations with different population structures: ten synthetic varieties, eight full-sib breeding families, eight half-sib breeding families and four Irish ecotypes.

The widespread distribution of perennial ryegrass in natural swards of Bulgaria suggests that local ecotypes are adapted to our environmental conditions. This valuable adaptive potential could be used in the development of Bulgarian varieties of perennial ryegrass (Katova 2005, 2005a). Studies on breeding value of Bulgarian ecotypes started only in 1995. The abovementioned advantages of this species are an argument to include ryegrass in Bulgarian breeding programs. Drought is an important environmental factor that limits the productivity of crops worldwide.
