Abstract/Contents:The zoysiagrass mite (Eriophyes zoysiae) is host specific to zoysiagrass and causes extensive growth reduction by producing a leaf curl and failure of the leaf tip to unfold on susceptible genotypes. Samples of various genotypes were exposed to an infested plant to allow for easy spread of the mites. The experiment was evaluated for zoysiagrass mite infestation by closely examining each plant and counting the number of leaves with leaf roll or hooked leaf tip symptoms. Data show DALZ9006, DALZ8516, DALZ8508, and Emerald are highly resistant to the zoysiagrass mite. The cultivars Meyer and Belair were among the most susceptible with all plants infested and an average of greater than 15 and 18 infested leaves per plant, respectively.
