Abstract/Contents:This study addressed direct low temperature kill at temperatures below 32 degrees F (0 degrees C). The turfgrasses evaluated included (a) 18 bermudagrass genotypes encompassing two species; (b) four buffalograss genotypes; (c) three genotypes of centipedegrass; (d) one genotype of seashore paspalum; (e) five genotypes of St. Augustinegrass; and (f) three species of zoysiagrass encompassing five genotypes. The warm-season turfgrasses adapted to the transitional climatic region that ranked highest in low temperature hardiness include the four buffalograss genotypes, plus two genotypes of Zoysia japonica, Midwest and Meyer. Ranking next in cold hardiness were three zoysiagrasses and four bermudagrass genotypes. Next were five bermudagrass genotypes along with two centipedegrass genotypes plus Adalayd seashore paspalum. Lowest ranked was St. Augustinegrass, with Floratam and Floralawn being extremely poor in terms of low temperature hardiness.
