Niskanen, Markku; Niemeläinen, O.; Jauhiainen, L. and Kurri, O. (2006) Effect of quality assessment on cultivar performance in timothy variety testing in Finland. In: Rit Lbhl, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists (10), pp. 107-110.
Significant differences in quality parameters among varieties were recorded for yields of both the first and second cuts. Differences in D-values reflected the differences in earliness of varieties and differences in protein content reflected differences in the yield of a particular cut.
Quality assessment in cultivar trials would motivate breeders to enhance their efforts in quality improvement.
