Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass is susceptible to freeze damage, especially in the northern boundary of the transition zone between warm- and cool-season grasses. Freeze tolerance is enhanced via traditional breeding approaches such as recurrent selection, and targeted approaches including gene transfer. As part of an integrated approach to improving freeze tolerance in bermudagrass, researchers at Oklahoma State University have refined laboratory-based methods to determine relative freeze tolerance of bermudagrasses to indicate progress in breeding programs and assist turfgrass managers in selecting adapted cultivars. Their research findings also include: Considerable variability in freeze tolerance exists within bermudagrasses. ‘Midlawn’, ‘Patriot’ and ‘Quickstand’ were among the hardiest vegetatively-propagated cultivars examined. ‘Riviera’ and ‘Yukon’ were among the seed-propagated cultivars least likely to experience winterkill. Putting green bermudagrasses were freeze susceptible, with ‘Tifgreen’, ‘Tifdwarf’ and ‘TifEagle’ being the most hardy[.] Longer lasting freezes cause more damage than shorter freezes, even at the same minimum temperature. Two genes associated with freeze tolerance in bermudagrass have been identified."
