Abstract/Contents:"Nineteen seeded and 10 vegetatively propagated genotypes of bermudagrass (Cynodon spp) were planted in July, 1997, irrigated as needed to promote vigorous growth, fertilized at the rate of 0.5 to 0.75 lb N/1000 sq ft per month during the growing season, and mowed at a height of 0.75 inches every 3-4 days with a reel-type mower. Seeded Genotypes: Entries which received quality ratings in the top statistical category on all rating dates were Princess, OKS 95-1, PST-R69C, SWI-7, J-1224, J-540, Shangri La, and Savannah. Princess plots, while statistically similar to several other plots, received the numerically highest rating on 5 of the 7 rating dates. When ratings for the entire season were averaged, Princess plots were rated significantly higher than plots of NuMex Sahara, Majestic, Sundevil II, Pyramid, and Arizona common. Overall, there were fewer statistical differences among plots of seeded genotypes than among those of vegetatively propagated genotypes. There were no statistical differences among seeded genotypes in winter color or spring greenup. Vegetative Genotypes: When monthly ratings were averaged for the season, Tifgreen exhibited higher quality than did OKC 19-9, Cardinal, or Mini-Verde. Tifgreen, OKC 18-4, Tifsport (Tift 94), CN 2-9, Midlawn, Tifway, and Shanghai were rated in the highest statistical grouping for quality. Tifway, Tifsport, Midlawn, Cardinal, Mini-Verde, CN 2-9, and Tifgreen exhibited the best winter color, while Shanghai, OKC 19-4, and OKC 19-9 were rated in the lowest statistical group for winter color. Cardinal and Tifway exhibited faster spring greenup than OKC 19-9."
