Seed yield components were recorded in plants of perennial ryegrass cv. Calibra a medium late, forage type (4n) in a two factorial block design with Nitrogen (N) and plant growth regulator (PGR) application in 2014 and 2015 at Aarhus University (AU), Flakkebjerg. For each plant, reproductive tillers were categorized into three groups (T1-T3) according to time of development. N increased the number of reproductive tillers and the number of florets per tiller in both years, except for the early developed tillers (T1) in 2015. N increased the number of seeds per spikelet in 2014.
The results show the potential for increasing seed yield by increasing the number of seeds per spikelet in particular in the late developed tillers by the application of PGR (trinexapac-ethyl) and we suggest this as a possible explanation for the yield increases generally found in field trials where PGR are reported to increase the total number of seed per unit area.
