Technical Abstract: The 7th International Symposium on the Molecular Breeding of Forage and Turf, MBFT2012, was held in Salt Lake City, UT, USA, from 4-7 June 2012. One-hundred and fifteen researchers from around the world presented oral and poster formats relating to ten general topics: Genetic mechanisms and applications, comparative genomics, herbage quality, symbionts, bioenergy, germplasm/diversity/and its impact on breeding, abiotic and biotic stresses, genomic selection and plant improvement, functional genomics and gene discovery, and transgenic processes and procedures. A tour was included to forage research plots at Evans farm, National Turfgrass Evaluation Program and other turf research plots at Greenville farm, and grazing research at Lewiston farm; all used by the USDA-ARS Forage and Range Research Laboratory and Utah State University. In this proceedings are selected manuscripts of invited speakers, and abstracts of oral and poster presentations. We thank the participants and organizing committee for the outstanding research and presentations at this symposium.
