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. Thirteen new perennial ryegrasses were released during 2008 with improved gray leaf spot resistance. Twelve new improved tall fescues were released in 2008. Substantial progress was made in developing intra- and inter-specific hybrids of Kentucky bluegrass. Ten new promising Kentucky bluegrass cultivars were released in 2008. Two new fine fescue for low maintenance turf were released. One creeping bentgrass was released called 13M with dollar spot resistance. Colonial bentgrass clones with improved brow patch resistance were used to develop 4 populations. Clones of velvet bentgrass found with resistance to copper spot, dollar spot, brown patch, and pythium were used in velvet population increases.
