Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted from 2006-10 primarily "[to] breed, select, and evaluate seeded and vegetative genotypes with improved turfgrass quality, pest resistance, and stress tolerance [for buffalograss]." Details methods and materials used during the study, noting that "1,629 selections that were obtained from hybridization and plant collection were evaluated for turfgrass quality, gender, and inflorescence height." Reports that advance lines and selections differed for [with regards to] stand density, turfgrass color and quality, and spring green-up." Concludes that "buffalograss sprig establishment can be enhanced by using sprigs with multiple nodes and sprigs with juvenile to mature nodes."

USGA Summary Points:Advance lines and selections differed for stand density, turfgrass color and quality, and spring green-up. Selected genotypes demonstrated differences in establishment and lateral spread under light-limiting conditions Initiated the first framework genetic linkage map for buffalograss Buffalograss sprig establishment can be enhanced by using sprigs with multiple nodes and sprigs with juvenile to mature nodes
