Abstract/Contents:"A trait expressing enhanced herbicide resistance has long been desired by breeders and weed scientists as a means to improve weed control options in turfgrasses; however, attempts to commercialize genetically modified (GM) herbicide resistant turfgrasses have thus far been unsuccessful. Naturally occurring resistance to the grass-specific herbicide, sethoxydim, and also to other ACCase inhibiting herbicides has been reported in several weedy grass species as a result of various point mutations at the site of action. Seashore paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum, Swartz) is a warm-season turfgrass that has numerous morphological characteristics that make it desirable as a turfgrass. Increased interest in its use as a turf is most often related to its tolerance to salt and other abiotic stresses1. Seashore paspalum is generally adapted to the same regions of the world as bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.), and many existing golf courses around the world have replaced bermudagrass with paspalum2. The most serious weed concern in paspalum plantings is bermudagrass, because it is highly competitive and difficult to eradicate once established. Invasion by bermudagrass and other weedy grasses can greatly reduce the aesthetic value and quality of paspalum turf. Currently there are no herbicides available that selectively control bermudagrass in seashore paspalum. Development of herbicideresistant paspalum could provide an effective means of managing bermudagrass in paspalum and allow golf course and sporting venues to transition from bermudagrass to seashore paspalum."
