Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to compare characteristics of four commercially available zoysiagrass cultivars with four experimental selections. Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the plots were 6 x 15 feet, with 18-inch alleyways, arranged in a randomized complete block design with three replications" and that "biweekly observations of the plot establishment rate as percent coverage of the were begun on 8 Aug. and continued until 27 Nov. 1988, when the turfs became winter dormant." Reports that "all cultivars rated acceptable or above, except DALZ 8502 and DALZ 8501." Concludes that "caution should be used when considering these data as the turfs are only in the first year following establishment."
