Abstract/Contents:"Centipedegrass (Eromochloa ophiuroides) requires few inputs and is more tolerant to pests than most turfgrasses. The grass is second in popularity among homeowners in NC because of its low maintenance requirements, but its low aesthetic value limits further popularity of the grass. A breeding program for this species was established at NC State University in 2010 to improve turf quality in combination with abiotic stress tolerance. A secondary objective of the breeding program has been to improve establishment speed. A study was initiated in spring of 2022 to evaluate 15 breeding lines and four controls (Common, Covington, Santte and Tifblair) for their ability to establish from seed versus sprigs. The trial was planted as a split-plot with four replications where the main plot factor was establishment method and the sub-plot factor was genotype. Entries were established in 5 x 5 ft plots at three locations in North Carolina: McKilwean Turf Farms (New Bern), Quality Turf (Burgaw) and the Lake Wheeler Turfgrass Field Laboratory (Raleigh). Data on percent green cover was collected every two weeks during the growing season through the use of UAV imagery. Additionally, turf quality including its individual components: density, uniformity, leaf texture, and genetic color, was evaluated on a scale of 1-9 according to NTEP at the peak of season."
