Abstract/Contents:"For more than forty years, the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) has coordinated trials and collected data on turfgrass traits from multiple species and sites across the U.S. and Canada. These trials are used worldwide for turfgrass cultivar improvement, sales and selection of improved turfgrasses by everyone from researchers to turfgrass professionals to hobbyist turfgrass managers. The NTEP web site (www.ntep.org), consisting of static, PDF or HTML-based tables to select grasses does not allow for customized results based on geography, specific site conditions or management levels. Therefore, the identification of improved turfgrasses for specific climates, stress resistance or particular uses within NTEP data is currently difficult and in need of improvement. A USDA Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI) grant provided funding for the development of a relational database structure, with NTEP funding the uploading of one million data records, spanning from 1981-2020 into the database. The University of Minnesota, in cooperation with NTEP, has recently developed a user interface to search the database records and publish customized reports of NTEP data. These data can now be summarized based on specific locations, site parameters such as soil pH and shade, management levels such as nitrogen and irrigation, and other criteria important in identifying and selecting improved grasses. In addition, data can be sorted by various data columns and output to .csv files, which can be uploaded into Excel for further manipulation. This database and user interface (version 1.0) is now available through the NTEP web site."
