Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the range of response (resistance or tolerance) of bermudagrass and seashore paspalum cultivars to the sting nematode and identify the best performing cultivars." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "for seashore paspalum, no difference in the sting nematode population was observed among the three cultivars 'SeaIsle 1', 'Aloha', and SeaDwarf' in March [2008]."

USGA Summary Points:In the greenhouse, sting nematodes reduced the root length of all bermudagrass cultivars, and the reduction ranged from 5 to 36%. The most tolerant bermudagrass cultivars were 'TifSport' and 'Patriot'. 'TifSport' was the most resistant bermudagrass cultivar while 'Champion', 'Floradwarf', 'MiniVerde', and 'TifEagle' were susceptible bermudagrass cultivars to sting nematodes both under greenhouse and field conditions. Both greenhouse and field studies indicated that greens-type bermudagrass cultivars supported higher populations of B. longicaudatus than those cultivars used on fairways. Sting nematodes reduced the root length of seashore paspalum cultivars from 12 to 27% in the greenhouse; however, the reduction was not different among cultivars. Sting nematode populations at harvest increased on all seashore paspalum cultivars under greenhouse conditions. However, 'SeaDwarf' and 'SeaIsle Supreme' exhibited best levels of tolerance among cultivars tested.
