Abstract/Contents:Profiles the 'RK19' variety of Kikuyu grass, and includes its registration statement. Lists the title holder as Future Turf Pty Ltd. Claims that 'RK19' "was selected in Western Australia from a collection of 72 male-sterile kikuyu genotypes," and that "general growth, root mass, and stolon characteristics were assessed in a pot experiment with calcareous sand at Como and in a spaced plant field experiment on an acidic loam soil where winter color retention and spring green-up were also recorded." Provides charts detailing characteristics such as leaf blade and sheath, inflorescence, and turf texture.
Note:Pictures, color
