Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "(1) develop baseline data concerning the minimum acceptable nitrogen nutritional levels and (2) to describe the anatomical and/or morphological characteristics associated with low nitrogen stress tolerant bermudagrass cultivars that might be utilized in a breeding program." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "four Cynodon species - Midway, Tifgreen, Texturf 10, and FB-119 - were maintained at three nitrogen fertility levels in the greenhouse." Reports that "significant differences in morphological characteristics occured when nitrogen was supplied and when nitrogen was withdrawn...Of the cultivars assessed, Texturf 10 was the best turf for low nitrogen stressed environments followed by FB-119."
