USGA Summary Points:Evaluation process of Bermuda hybrids planted in 2018 and 2019 identified 73 entries suitable for different purposes and further tests. The selection process continues. Study including 21 UCR hybrids and 4 commercial cultivars at the Shadow Creek GC, Las Vegas, NV was established in July 2020 to evaluate performance in a harsher climate. Evaluation of the best UCR performers (#17-8, TP6-3, BF2 and #10-9) and seven commercial cultivars continues at the Napa Golf Course in Northern California to test performance under regular fairway traffic and maintenance. Cv. Latitude 36 and #17-8 are the best performers so far. Thirty-one of best performing kikuyugrass hybrids have been selected for further evaluation in larger test plots in 2021. Testing and selection of bermudagrass and kikuyugrass for drought tolerance was initiated in 2019 and continued in 2020. New cooperation with other warm-season grass breeding programs in the United States has been established under the Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI) project.
