Abstract
The incentives of this thesis are some of the challenges that grassland production in Belgium are exposed to. First, more dry summer spells are predicted due to climate change (IPPC, 2007). Second, more grass is cut and conserved due to current trends in dairy production. Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.; Fa) is a forage grass species that is expected to cope with these challenges. This thesis had three objectives: 1. to study the agronomy of Fa under Belgian conditions; 2. to develop methods that could be used in breeding to overcome the main disadvatages of Fa; 3. to breed an Fa Variety adapted to Belgian circumstances.
