Australian National Turfgrass Evaluation Program is a joint program formed in 1997 by member companies of the Australian Seed Federation and Turf and Lawn Seed Group who together coordinates uniform and independent evaluation trials of turfgrass varieties.

Due to the limiting testing in Australia, managers generally have to make choices based on overseas data or very limited local field trials resulting in using inferior varieties for their particular situation.

The ANTEP – Perennial Ryegrass trial is now completed with fifty-six ryegrass varieties evaluated for a two and a half-year period under two mowing heights at Werribee Park Golf Club and at Keysborough Golf Club in Melbourne.
