Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2008 with primary objectives to "(1) establish efficient vegetative propagation methods of greens-type Poa annua for sod production and for establishing/renovating golf course putting greens," "(2) scale-up our results for greens-type cultivar production to a larger commercial level by collaborating with sod producers," and "(3) release a genetically stable, vegetative greens-type cultivar exhibiting superior putting green quality and stress tolerance." Details methods and materials used during the experiment, identifying "vegetative propagation in combination with the action of mowing as the most critical factor to maintaining the greens-type phenotype." Reports that "after the initial establishment, cores will be harvested from sod fields to expand production and supply of...[researchers'] greens-type P. annua cultivar." Concludes that "the cultivar chosen for this sod production has repeatedly demonstrated high turf quality and excellent field resistance to anthracnose and dollar spot."

USGA Summary Points:Our research has successfully demonstrated the potential to maintain the phenotypic stability of greens-type Poa annua cultivars through vegetative propagation in combination with mowing We have successfully produced enough stock material to initiate testing of largescale sod production of one our top-performing cultivars We have begun collaborating with commercial sod producers in Pennsylvania and Illinios to begin scaling up our vegetative propagation techniques of greens-type P. annua
