USGA Summary Points:This research, which brings together a strong multidisciplinary team of entomologists, turfgrass physiologists and breeders, and plant biochemists will contribute to our basic understanding of chinch bug resistance in turfgrasses. Several cool- and warm-seasons turfgrasses with resistant to chinch bugs in the Blissus complex have been identified. Significant progress towards identifying the biochemical and physiological mechanisms responsible for chinch bug- resistance have been made. The identification of protein-mediated markers for insect resistance provides a novel approach for screening insect-resistant germplasm. Ultimately, molecular markers identified from this research will provide a set of tools for screening turfgrasses for resistance to chinch bugs and furnish a starting point for characterizing additional protein-mediated markers specific to insect resistance. Knowledge gained from this project will benefit turfgrass sod producers, golf course superintendents and other turfgrass managers by furnishing turfgrasses with improved resistance to chinch bugs.
