Abstract/Contents:"Heat stress is a major problem throughout the Southwest in summer months, particularly with cool season grasses such as creeping bentgrass. Currently, it takes years for plant breeders to select and develop new heat tolerant turfgrass cultivars. Cellular electrolyte leakage (a laboratory technique) was used in attempt to predict relative heat tolerances of 6 Kentucky bluegrass cultivars. To determine actual relative heat tolerance, grasses were grown under controlled high temperature conditions in a growth chamber. Actual relative heat tolerance decreased in this order: BM-3, Ryss, Nugget, Midnight, and Lavang. Electrolyte leakage was able to predict the most heat sensitive (Lavang) and most heat tolerant (BM-3) cultivars only."
