Abstract/Contents:"In the past decade, in many regions of Mediterranean Europe, bermudagrasses (Cynodon spp.) have increased in use for lawns, sport fields and golf courses. This is because the warmseason Cynodon species have superior drought resistance, dehydration avoidance, rooting depth, heat stress resistance and wear tolerance respect to the traditional cool-season turfgrasses. Thus, expanded use of bermudagrasses could play a key role in making turfs more environmentally friendly and sustainable. The first extensive experimental trial on warm-season turfgrasses in Europe was carried out in Rome in the years 1996-2000 (Croce et al., 2001) comparing 16 cultivars of Cynodon. The objective of this research was to evaluate the adaptation of standard Tifway versus new vegetatively propagated and seeded cultivars of Cynodon species for the Mediterranean area."
