Abstract/Contents:"Paspalum spp. is a large genus with more than 400 identified species grouped into 20 taxonomic groups. In Brazil, there are around 220 native species. Embrapa Cattle-Southeast located in Sao˜Carlos, state of Sao˜Paulo, maintains a large germplasm bank of the genus with more than 320 accessions of 37 species collected in various regions of the country. Recently, a project coordinated by Embrapa Cattle-Southeast was initiated with the objectives of evaluating accessions for use as turf. An experiment was conducted in Campo Grande, MS, with 27 accessions belonging to ten species in plots 1.0 to 1.5 m2 in three replications. Plots were established with individual cuttings spaced 15 cm from each other on February 2011 and evaluated for plant survival and soil cover. In the beginning of the rainy season in November, plots were cut to a 5 cm height and growth above that was harvested every fortnight in a 1 m2 area. Data were analyzed by SAS. Of the 27 accessions, nine presented more than 80% survival 45 days after planting, and more than 80% soil cover 4 months after planting. These are: P. modestum 2 and 5, P. lividum 4, P. rhodopedum 8, P. notatum 13, 20 and 22 and Paspalum sp. 18. Paspalum oteroi 12 showed little plant survival but good soil cover. One year after planting soil cover varied from 3.4 m2 to 32 m2. Total dry matter in the rainy season varied from 0.3 to 1.0 kg/m2 in a maximum of 11 harvests. Accessions 2, 4 and 5 produced less than 400 g in 9 harvests. Considering highest soil cover and lower number of harvests, dry matter yields and flowering, accessions of P. modestum, P. oteroi and P. lividum showed great promise to be used as turf, emphasizing the great potential of this germplasm collection."
