Abstract/Contents:"A study, sponsored by the National Turf Evaluation Program (NTEP), was initiated in 1997 at the Texas A&M University Turfgrass Field Laboratory in College Station, TX to compare 19 seeded and 10 vegetatively propagated genotypes of bermudagrass. Jackpot, Arizona common, NuMex Sahara, Blue-Muda, Shangri La, and Majestic were the fastest to cover on all rating dates. By 5 weeks after planting, 10 of the 19 genotypes were over 85% covered. No statistical differences in turf quality were observed among genotypes on any single rating date. When ratings for the entire season were averaged, however, SWI-11, Sydney, Shangri La, Majestic and Princess were rated highest in quality. All improved genotypes had better quality then Arizona common. Princess had numerically better fall color than the other genotypes and was statistically superior to Blackjack, J-1224, Mirage, Sundevil II, and OKS 95-1, which were in the lowest statistical grouping for fall color. There were no differences in visually rated leaf texture between the seeded bermudagrass genotypes. OKC 18-4, Midlawn, Tifgreen, Cardinal, and Shanghai were rated highest for rate of coverage on all rating dates. By 12 weeks after planting, all entries except Mini-Verde were at least 88% covered. On all rating dates, Cardinal and Shanghai received visual quality ratings in the top statistical grouping, and CN 2-9, OKC 19-9, and Mini-Verde were rated in the lowest grouping. Overall, Cardinal, Shanghai, and OKC 18-4 exhibited the best quality. Cardinal, Tifway, CN 2-9, Midlawn, And TifSport exhibited the best color in November 1997, and had better color than all other genotypes except Shanghai. Mini-Verde and Cardinal were the finest textured vegetatively propogated entries and Shanghai was the coarsest."
