Abstract/Contents:"Various species of Zoysiagrass (Zoysia matrella and Z. japonica) originating in the Orient are in use as durable turfgrass cultivars around the world. Many cultivars and genotypes of Zoysiagrass have been under evaluation at TAMU-Dallas to develop a pest resistant and low cultural input turfgrass species. Screening studies have included investigations on resistance to primary pest including insect and mite. Resistance among the Zoysia spp. was identified to fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda); tropical sod webworm (Herpetogramma phaeopteralis) and the host specific zoysiagrass mite (Eriophyes zoysiae). Genetic resistance to pests including insects, mites and fungal disease is an effective and economical control strategy which should be a component of every turfgrass management program when such turfgrass cultivars are available. Several Zoysia genotypes were identified with multiple insect and disease resistance characteristics and new cultivars are being released to the turfgrass industry."
