Introduction

With the vast daily consumption of dairy products worldwide, it is important to ensure the quality of the products. Pasture quality control is the first step to the success of this food web. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is one of the most important pasture plants and widely distributed throughout the world due to its high levels of quality, palatability, digestible energy (fiber), protein, minerals and total usable carbohydrates. It is the main food for cattle, also determining milk quality. However, both susceptibility of plant diseases and potential causes of ruminant diseases (some plant origin pathogens can cause disease of the ruminant) are main limitations to expand its use. Therefore, in this study, we aim at i) seeking sustainable means for pathogen control and unraveling the mechanisms underneath. ii) increasing the biomass and quality (such as nutritional values) of the perennial ryegrass.
