Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine differences in establishment rate of ten cultivars of Zoysia spp. established from single potted plants and to examine the correlation between their stolon growth rate and temperature at soil surface." Details methods and materials used in the study and lists Zoysia species used in the study, including "5 cultivars of Zoysia japonica Steud. (Zj) ('De Anza', 'El Toro', 'Meyer', 'Victoria' and 'Zenith')"; "2 cultivars of Zoysia matrella (L.) Merr. (Zm) ('DALZ 0101' and 'Zeon')"; "Zoysia tenuifolia Willd. Ex. Thiele (Zt)"; and "2 interspecific hybrids of Zoysia japonica x Z. pacifica Goudsw. (Zjxp) ('Emerald' and 'HT 210')." Reports that "the highest stolon density was achieved by 'De Anza' and 'Zeon' (21.0 and 22.8 m [meters] m-2 [per square meter] respectively), while lowest stolon density was found for Z. tenuifolia (4.5 m m-2)." Concludes that "for the tested zoysiagrass cultivars, ground cover seemed to be more influenced by stolon number than by stolon length and total stolon length per unit area was more cultivar-specific than species-specific."
