Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon, C. dactylon × C. transvaalensis) continues to be the prevailing turfgrass species used in Arkansas for golf courses, sports fields, home lawns, and utility turf situations. Identifying adapted cultivars for the region remains a central focus of the University of Arkansas turfgrass research program. The National Turfgrass Evaluation Program is the predominant means by which cultivars are tested though out North America. A bermudagrass cultivar trial was planted in the summer of 2002 at Fayetteville, Ark. This trial has been maintained under golf course fairway conditions and data on spring green-up, overall quality, leaf color, leaf texture, and seedhead formation were collected during the 2003 growing season. 'Aussie Green' had the most spring green-up on 13 April and consistently had the highest turf quality during the growing season. On 25 June, 'GN-1' had the darkest green color and on 28 July 'Ashmore' had the finest leaf texture. 'Ashmore', 'Aussie Green', and 'Patriot', were the only cultivars producing no seedheads on the 25 June evaluation date."
