USGA Summary Points:Germplasm was enriched through collection and hybridization. New selections and advanced lines were established. Elite genotypes were evaluated under a wide range of environments. Significant differences were observed among genotypes tested for most traits. The trial will continue and seeds of some elite genotypes will be increased. Results from management studies showed significant differences among N rates, mowing heights, and genotypes, but not for their interactions. The trials will continue for conclusive results. Growing degree-day accumulation is a major contributor to successful establishment. Further study is needed to further understand the nature of the influence. Framework mapping of diploid population of buffalograss will be developed to better understand this grass.
