Newsletter Issue 44 December 2010

Welcome to the 44th edition of the IHSG newsletter.

While herbage seed research focus on increasing yield and quality often combined with reducing input factors for the benefit of farm economy and environmental concern, I find it very encouraging to consider the various uses of herbage crops and the importance of grasses and legumes in the global ecosystem.
You will find examples of herbage crops uses in presidents column along with papers on post-harvest residue management, new techniques for leaf disease monitoring, the use of 15N in red fescue, water stress management, as well as an introduction of a ‘Top seed yield competition’ in the newsletter attachment below.
