Abstract/Contents:Profiles the 'KP4' variety of rhodes grass, and includes its registration statement. Identifies its title holder as the State of Queensland through its Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries. Claims that the 'KP4' variety is a "synthetic cultivar derived from four generations of mass selection" and that "selection was for the following attributes: prostrate creeping early growth habit with short stolon internodes resulting in a dense stolon mat; leafy appearance; fine leaf and stem; and late flowering (i.e. a long period of vegetative growth before flowering)." Provides tables comparing 'KP4' with 'Finecut,' 'Topcut,' and 'Callide' varieties in terms of growth habit and flowering date.
