Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the genetic potential of native prairie junegrass (Koeleria macrantha) germplasm for use as low-input turfgrass." Explains that "grass species that are native to North America should be better able to cope with our environment and could lead to overall reductions in inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides, and water." Describes the experiment and the methods used.

USGA Summary Points:Mowing quality of some non-native collections is superior than native germplasm. Many accessions have adequate turfgrass quality under low-input conditions. Integration of traits from diverse germplasm should be effective in the development of a low-input cultivar.
