USGA Summary Points:"Continued progress was made in obtaining new sources of turfgrass germplasm from old turf areas in Europe. 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. Twenty new perennial ryegrasses were released during 2007 with improvemed gray leaf spot resistance." "Fifteen new improved tall fescues were released in 2007." "Substantial progress was made in developing intra- and inter-specific hybrids of Kentucky bluegrass. Ten new promising Kentucky bluegrass cultivars were released in 2007 and three inter-specific hybrids from Kentucky bluegrass and Texas bluegrass were released." "Seven new fine fescue for low maintenance turf were released." "Thirty-two creeping bentgrass clones were identified with dollar spot resistance. Thirty-seven colonial bentgrass clones were found with improved brow patch resistance. Sixty-three clones of velvet bentgrass were found with resistance to dollar spot and brown patch."
