Abstract/Contents:"Creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) is a cool-season turfgrass with many desirable attributes and is particularly suited for golf course greens. However, with the continuous increase in average global temperature, improving thermotolerance in creeping bentgrass is becoming more urgent. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assessing heat tolerance of different creeping bentgrass breeding lines compared against commercial cultivars which form a range of thermotolerance and identify associated physiological traits. Ten genotypes were selected to grow in growth chamber and exposed to control (20/15┬░C day/night) and high temperature (38/33┬░C day/night) treatments. AU Victory was the top performer whereas Crenshaw consistently poorly performed among these five commercial cultivars considering all the parameters measured. S11 729-10 was the most heat tolerant while S11 675-02 was the most sensitive among five breeding lines with that S11 729-10 presenting superior performance to AU Victory whereas S11 675-02 showing similar physiological responses to Crenshaw, considering the changes in turf quality rating (TQ), green percent cover, photochemical efficiency (Fv/Fm), electrolyte leakage (EL), total chlorophyll content, the contents of malondialdehyde (MDA) as well as protein when exposed to heat stress. The heat-tolerant S11 729-10 was able to better maintain cell membrane stability and minimize oxidative damage as well as protein change as detected by insignificant changes in EL, MDA content plus total protein content throughout the trial compared to other genotypes. Results indicating variability in the level of heat tolerance and associated mechanisms in creeping bentgrass germplasm could be utilized to develop new cultivars with enhanced thermotolerance for use specifically in the Southeastern United States."
