Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) are suitable for mixed breeding, high quality grass production and soil surface coverage rate is high because of roughage production, pasture breeding studies, soil preservation and landscape arrangements are of great importance. However, these plants cannot be cultivated in high altitude regions due to their sensitivity to cold. The wilds of these species are found in the Eastern Anatolia Region and there are no studies on their evaluation. In this article, the importance and cold resistance of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) forage crops are discussed using old and new studies.
