Climate change causes increasing drought and heat stress, endangering the agricultural use of grassland especially in the outer alpine areas. A changing species spectrum towards heat tolerant grasses, forbs and legumes has therefore to be expected in the long term. The aim of this study was to test and compare various grass species both under humid and dry site conditions in Austria in terms of yield, forage quality and endurance. The grass species studied were Dactylis glomerata, Festuca pratensis, Festulolium loliaceum, Festuca arundinacea, Festuca rupicola, Festuca rubra, Poa angustifolia, Poa compressa, Poa pratensis, Bromus inermis and Bromus erectus. The cultivars Festuca arundinacea and Festulolium loliaceum performed promising in terms of productivity and endurance and should therefore be further tested for grassland seed mixtures on dry sites of Austria. Also Bromus erectus and Bromus inermis adapted well to dry site conditions and should therefore be considered as potential components in grassland seed mixtures for referring sites.
