Abstract/Contents:The six Zoysia cultivars being characterized include four Z. japonica (Belair, El Toro, Korean Commmon, and Meyer), one Z. matrella (FC-13521), and one Z. japonica x Z. tenuifolia hybrid (Emerald). The cultivars were evaluated for turfgrass quality during the spring transition in 1989. The visual quality estimates were based primarily on a composite of two components: (a) uniformity of appearance and (b) shoot density. Emerald ranked highest for quality during the spring transition, while FC-13521 and Emerald ranked highest for fall low temperature color retention. Belair and Korean Common have ranked the poorest in turf performance.
