Abstract/Contents:"The future of turfgrass and other landscapes is shaky in California, with water supplies uncertain. Use of drought tolerant plant species should be at the forefront of water conservation management plans for golf courses and other landscapes. Bermudagrass is commonly used throughout the southern U.S. and is considered the 'go to' warm-season species for many golf courses and athletic fields in California, retaining good quality and green color under drought or deficit irrigation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate new bermudagrasses developed at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) across several climatic zones in California. Twelve hybrids and accessions were selected from ca. 450 initial entries and tested for two years (2017-2019) together with three commercial cultivars (Bandera, Tifway and TifTuf) in three locations: UCR (Riverside, Inland Southern California); Coachella Valley (Thermal, Low Desert) and San Francisco area (Fairfax, Northern California). Experiments were designed as randomized completed blocks with three replications. During the first year, dynamics of establishment were measured, and after obtaining full cover, visual turf quality, winter color retention, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Dark Green Color Index (DGCI, using Digital Image Analysis) were evaluated. Hybrids and accessions performance differed among locations, with the lowest quality and color retention during the winter in Northern California. Growth dynamics, quality and winter color retention differed also between tested entries, with several of them showing comparable or higher performance than commercial cultivars."
