Abstract/Contents:Discusses differences among zoysiagrass cultivars, focusing on zoysiagrass in the United States. States that the species' quality "is influenced mostly by differences in texture and density between species: Z. japonica has a coarser leaf texture and less density than Z. matrella. Stress tolerance is the other key factor that separates the turf quality of zoysiagrass cultivars." Mentions specific differences among cultivars regarding leaf texture and color. Details irrigation requirements, rooting depth, leaf firing, salinity tolerance, and shade tolerance as types of environmental stress. Concludes that "each region or site-specific location has different requirements, and the preferences of superintendents vary."
