USGA Summary Points:Continued progress was made in obtaining new sources of turfgrass germplasm from old turf areas in Europe and New England. These sources are being used to enhance the Rutgers breeding program. Modified population backcrossing and continued cycles of phenotypic and genotypic selection combined with increasing sources of genetic diversity in turfgrass germplasm and beneficial endophytes enables significant improvements in the performance of new cultivars. Thirteen new perennial ryegrasses were released during 2006 with improved gray leaf spot resistance. Substantial progress was made in developing intra- and inter-specific hybrids of Kentucky bluegrass. Nine new promising Kentucky bluegrass cultivars were released in 2006 and three inter-specific hybrids from Kentucky bluegrass and Texas bluegrass were released. Forty-eight new sources of dollar spot and brown patch were identified in creeping, colonial, and velvet bentgrasses. Seven new creeping bentgrass cultivars and two velvet bentgrass cultivars were released in 2006. A new improved Rutgers novel wear simulator was developed in 2006 by mounting the wear unit on a Toro wall behind a rotary mower power unit.
