Abstract/Contents:Describes a study of turf traits from Zoysia japonica Steud. States that "seed was harvested from each of 28 preselected maternal parents, including 'Meyer,' that were in isolated polycross. Each of those half-sib progeny sets was chemically scarified with KOH and germinated in a growth chamber at 30° to 35° C on a cross-linked polyacrylamide gel in petri plates. Resulting seedlings were started along with sprigs of their corresponding maternal parents," and crown area, total stolon length, turf quality turf quality rating, spring greenup rating, winter hardiness rating, and heading rating were measured at the end of the first growing season in the same year of establishment. States that an "analysis of variance was calculated for each variable using a maternal half-sib model." Concludes that the results indicate "that it is possible to select and breed for the high quality turf traits that are presently exclusive to vegetative zoysia cultivars. Our historic favorite, 'Meyer' ranked below approximately one third of the selected parents in turf quality. Meyer is presently the most broadly used, most broadly adapted, superior standard to which all other zoysias are compared. In this selected population, there are many plants of high turf quailty with greater spreading ability and heading, but few with faster spring greenup and greater winter hardiness. But with the high heritabilities for spring greenup and winter hardiness, the small gains that can be identified have a good probability of being incorporated into a synthetic."
