Abstract/Contents:"Several new bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.) genotypes have recently become available, including some dwarf types that are especially suited for the very low mowing heights of modern golf putting greens. Among the six bermudagrass genotypes planted for this study were TW72, Mini-Verde, Floradwarf and Champion, which are new dwarf type genotypes, Tifdwarf, a widely used dwarf type that has been around for about 30 yr., and Baby, a new fine textured bermudagrass that is not a true dwarf type. The grasses were planted as 4 inch² plugs on 1 ft centers 31 May 1996 at the Texas A&M University Turfgrass Field Laboratory in College Station, TX. TW72 and Tifdwarf were obtained as plugs, whereas Champion, Baby, Floradwarf and Mini-Verde were obtained as sod which was cut into plugs at the time of planting. The plots received ample irrigation and fertilization to promote lateral spread of stolons and rhizomes. Baby was the fastest genotype to cover, reaching 100% coverage by 13 Sep. Among the dwarf types, Tifdwarf and TW72 exhibited the fastest coverage rates. Because Tifdwarf and TW72 were planted as established plugs with an intact, if limited, root system, they probably had an advantage over the other genotypes, which, because they were cut from sod, had more limited root systems at the time of planting."
