Abstract/Contents:The purpose of this work is to develop and refine cultural strategies and practices that optimize turf quality and resource efficiency for existing and newly developed zoysiagrass cultivars for southern regions of the United States. Mowing and nitrogen treatments were applied in a strip plot design. Data collected on the effects of management treatments included winter green color retention and turf quality. All entries maintained green leaves under their canopies over the winter. Green cover was the greatest for DALZ8502, El Toro, and TAES3372 and was least for Meyer, Belair, and Cashmere. By mid-winter, Emerald and DALZ8508 retained the best color and appearance. Differences among the management treatments were not evident.
