Abstract/Contents:Presents a study initiated during 2010 to "(1) develop seeded type zoysiagrass germplasm/cultivar(s) with high seed yields that offer an economical alternative to vegetative types with the potential for rapid turf establishment," and "(2) breed improved characteristics such as turf quality, competitive ability, and persistence under biotic and abiotic stresses." Details methods and materials used during the experiment, stating that "19 of the 53 selected experimental lines were classified as fine textured, 18 as medium coarse, and 16 as coarse. Three isolation blocks were planted representing each texture class." Reports that "seed was harvested from the isolation blocks which represent each of [the] three texture classes in late May and early June of 2010." Concludes that during winter of 2010, "seed harvested from 15 fine-textured entries will be germinated in the greenhouse to generate a progeny population of over 1,000 individuals and planted in a spaced-plant nursery in 2011."

USGA Summary Points:Fifty-three advanced lines with the potential for good seed production were planted in field isolation blocks July 2, 2009 in order to allow open pollination within texture classes Seed was harvested from the isolation blocks which represent each of three texture classes in late May and early June of 2010. This winter, seed harvested from 15 fine-textured entries will be germinated in the greenhouse to generate a progeny population of over 1,000 individuals and planted in a spaced-plant nursery in 2011
