"Winter Rye"[edit]

Does anyone know if the "winter rye" that's sometimes overseeded into turfgrass is a Lolium species? --Belgrano 21:21, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

No, it is not: "Winter Rye" is Secale cereale; see Rye. --bstpierre

Homework[edit]

This page is great for my science homework

Ryegrass adaptation in the US[edit]

I've removed this map from the article;

File:RyegrassMapUSA.jpg
Ryegrass adaptation in the U.S.

Reasons;

1. It is not adequately labelled, it probably refers to perennial ryegrass but it does not say so. And if it is for perennial ryegrass, then it belongs in that specific article.

2. The term 'adaptation' means little in itself, and needs to be further elaborated here.

The adaptation map is incorrect for perennial ryegrass. As a permanent lawn, it can successfully grow in areas with mild winters and summers. It has poor tolerance for high heat or extreme cold. The pictured map most likely represents Fescue's (Festuca) adaptation area in the US.

Symbiotic 'fungal endophyte'[edit]

Clarification of what fungus is needed or this sentence is extraneous and confusing. Also, a citation is needed or this claim may be dispututed. PMID would be ideal. Perhaps the author was thinking of rye grain which can be used as a substrate for ergot fungi? The author could mean a fruiting fungus such as a mushroom as well. If someone could provide clarification, I will gladly find and cite an appropriate PubMed linked publication. I will look into it when/if I get the time.

FURTHERMORE, please consider revising the word 'clandestine' to describe the fungus. Laws very widely by country. Would this be considered editorializing, contentious, or POV? Although Ill probably delete it when I add clarification, what template should I use for such situations in the future? You can respond here or on my Talk page

Growth and Pollination[edit]

Does Ryegrass self pollinate or require pollination of other grass? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.47.124.96 (talk) 13:03, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
