Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) continues to be the predominate turfgrass species used in Arkansas for golf courses, sports fields, home lawns and utility turf situations. Identifying adapted cultivars for the region remains a central focus of the University of Arkansas turfgrass research program. The National Turfgrass Evaluation Program is the predominant means by which cultivars are tested throughout North America. A bermudagrass cultivar trial was planted in the summer of 2002 at Fayetteville, Ark. This trial was maintained under golf course fairway conditions and data on turfgrass establishment, color, and texture were collected in the first growing season. Seeded varieties reached 90% cover 25 days earlier than vegetatively propagated varieties. 'Tifway', 'Tifsport', and 'Tift No. 4' had the lowest percent cover throughout most of the growning seasons. There were no significant differences among varieties with regard to leaf color or texture."
