Abstract/Contents:A turf-type buffalograss population was evaluated for several visual and physical characters. Weighed values were assigned to certain traits after they were evaluated for specific phenotypic and genotypic parameters. The results produced a selection index containing seven traits. From the index, selection intensity was set at 30% and 12 superior half-sib families were selected for recombination as synthetic cultivars. From these 12 superior families, four synthetic blocks were planted in 1992. Each synthetic has been roughed for off-types, and seed will be harvested from the four blocks in 1993.
