Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by the University of Massachusetts-Amherst to: "1. Collect velvet bentgrass (Agrostis canina L.) germplasm accessions from golf courses throughout New England, 2. identify and group accessions based on their genetic similarities for analysis and breeding, [and] 3. evaluate accessions for improved resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses in the field." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that the collections "will be evaluated for color (0-9 scale with 6 as acceptable)...[and] for biotic stresses such as dollar spot (% [percent] of severity) caused by Sclerotinia homoeocarpa." Concludes that "this research is expected to result in a well-characterized collection of velvet bentgrass accessions...[and] is also expected to identify a few key genetic markers, which can be used to quickly screen future velvet bentgrass collections and identify key accessions for addition to the gene bank."
