- Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) is dominant forage and turf grass specie in temperate regions due to its good grazing tolerance, extraordinarily high digestibility and adequate seed production. Perennial ryegrass is cultivated in the USA, China, Japan, UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America. The species may also aid China in mitigating food shortages issue since it may be capable of producing marketable yields on marginal agricultural land. However, marginal lands are usually afflicted by abiotic stresses such as heat, cold, drought, waterlogging and high salinity, all of which may negatively impact yield, quality, and growth of perennial ryegrass. For example, perennial ryegrass is a drought-susceptible grass species and its leaf extension and appearance rates are both reduced under drought stress. Under waterlogging treatment, the emergence and seedling growth of cv. S.24 perennial ryegrass is significantly reduced in a glasshouse environment, with dry matter yield reduced by up to 25%. Moreover, as a cool season grass, perennial ryegrass has poor heat resistance, making it more likely to die in high-temperature, and high-humidity regions in summer. The susceptibility of perennial ryegrass to freezing temperature also limits its cultivation.
