Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "compare tolerance of seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum Swartz) and other warm-season turfgrass species to Japanese beetle grubs." States that researchers "compared grub survival and weight gain, foliar growth and root loss among seashore paspalum, zoysiagrass and bermudagrass cultivars in a two-year study." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "turfgrass cultivars used in year 1 of the study were Durban, Sea Isle 1, Sea Isle 2000, Sea Dwarf, Salam, Sea Spray, [and] Asul...In year 2, the same seashore paspalum cultivars were tested, except for HI-10 and 561-79, which were dropped from the study." Reports that "cultivar influenced grub survival and weight. Average survival ranged from 90% on Cavalier zoysiagrass to 20% on Sea Dwarf paspalum, and average grub weight at the end of the trial ranged from 184 to 249 milligrams." Also reports that "among the seashore paspalum cultivars evaluated, 561-79, Sea Isle 2000, Durban, HI-10, Kim-1, Sea Dwarf and Sea Spray showed improved ability to tolerate grub feeding, which was measured by reduced impact on foliar growth."
