Abstract/Contents:Profiles the 'A-1' variety of zoysia grass, and includes its registration statement. Identifies the title holder as GeneGro Pty Ltd. Claims that "'A-1' showed higher tiller density and a more prostrate growth habit than the parent ecotype, and was selected from the subsequent breeding population on the basis of its superior turf color, quality under mowing for six years, and shade tolerance as shown by its ability to maintain density of the mown sward under greatly reduced light levels." Provides charts detailing characteristics such as stolon node and flowering tiller which distinguish 'A-1' from other similar varieties.
