Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "collect and evaluate potentially useful turfgrass germplasm and associated endophytes." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "the breeding program in bentgrasses made good progress in finding new sources of resistance to brown patch in colonial bentgrass."

USGA Summary Points:Continued progress was made in obtaining new sources of turfgrass germplasm. 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 has resulted in the continued development and release of top performing varieties in the NTEP. Fifteen new tall fescues, 3 fine fescues, 5 Kentucky bluegrasses, 2 bentgrasses, and 3 perennial ryegrasses were released in 2009. 'Capri' colonial bentgrass is an improved variety with better brown patch resistance, and 'Pinup' creeping bentgrass has improved dollar spot resistance. Published or have in press over 10 referred journal articles in 2009.
