Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "develop vegetatively and seed-propagated bermudagrass with high turf quality and improved freeze tolerance." Explains that "a common way to compare relative freeze temperatures of a group of cultivars is to establish them in the field, then wait for cold temperatures to sort them out. However, during a mild winter, temperatures may not be cold enough to kill any cultivars of interest, and no progress would be achieved." Details the materials and methods of the study, stating that "bermudagrass plants were established and maintained in growth chambers. For studies with seed-propagated cultivars, seed from the lots used in the 2002 NTEP [National Turfgrass Evaluation Program] bermudagrass trial was obtained from the sponsors." Reports that "vegetatively propagated bermudagrasses ranged in freeze tolerance from 20.8 F [Fahrenheit] (-6.2 C [Celsius]) (GN-1) to 11.3 F (-11.5 C) (OKC 70-18). Three cultivars, GN-1, Celebration and MS-Choice were significantly less freeze-tolerant than Tifway." Concludes that "although many factors in addition to freeze tolerance will be assessed in making cultivar selections, choices are...available with freeze tolerance suitable for areas of the transition zone requiring superior winter hardiness."
