USGA Summary Points:Cynodon germplasm evaluated over the past four years contains desirable traits that will enhance the breeding of seed- and vegetatively-propagated turf varieties. Elite germplasm from this collection was used to form new breeding populations, introgressed into existing breeding populations used for cyclical selection, and crossing with C. transvaalensis to produce clonally propagated F1 hybrids. Plants were selected from two cyclical breeding populations. The selected plants from the breeding population will be intercrossed in 2006 to advance the germinations in the recurrent selection breeding process. Seed of eight new synthetic turf bermudagrass varieties was harvested from polycross blocks grown in isolation from other bermudagrass. The seed will be used to initiate performance testing of the synthetics beginning in 2006. Interspecific F1 hybrids were produced from the crossing of selected C. dactylon and C. Transvaalensis plants.
