Abstract/Contents:"Zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.) continues to increase in popularity in transition-zone environments due to its excellent turfgrass quality, persistence under adverse conditions, and low maintenance requirements. The National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) is the predominant means by which cultivars are tested throughout North America. A zoysiagrass 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 turf quality, leaf color, leaf texture, and frost damage were collected during the 2003 growing season. 'Cavalier' and 'Emerald' had the most spring green-up on 3 March, 'Zorro' and 'Emerald' had the best average overall quality throughout the growing season, 'Zorro', 'El Toro', and 'Emerald' had the darkest color on 6 June, 'Cavalier', 'Zorro', and 'Emerald' had the finest leaf texture on 28 July, and 'Emerald', 'Zorro', and 'Cavalier' had the least frost damage on 6 November."
