Abstract/Contents:"Limited water resources are a major concern for the turfgrass industry. Identification and use of drought resistant cultivars is an important approach to reduce turfgrass water usage. An extensive root system contributes to increased drought resistance by enabling extraction of water from the deeper soil profiles. Therefore, the objectives of this research were i) to evaluate differences in rooting characteristics of 21 bermudagrass cultivars and OSU experimental genotypes when grown under well-watered non-stressed controlled environment conditions and ii) to identify and select genotypes with higher root to shoot ratios. Tahoma 31 and TifTuf were used as industrial standards. Grasses were grown in sand filled, flexible, clear plastic tubes. The experimental design was a completely randomized design with four replications of each genotype. Bermudagrass genotypes showed variation in rooting parameters when evaluated for a 120 cm vertical root profile. Identification and selection of genotypes with superior rooting characteristics and higher root to shoot ratios would help in pre-screening genotypes with improved drought resistance."
