Abstract/Contents:"'Diamond' zoysiagrass (Zoysia matrella) tested as DALZ8502 is a new release from Texas Agricultural Experimental Station, which has a fine texture with excellent density. Greenhouse and field studies were conducted in 1996 to evaluate rooting, turf performance and adaptation of Diamond under different light intensities. In the greenhouse, turf was sodded on a bench under 4 shade treatments and maintained for a 6-wk period. The soil temperature was maintained between 26 to 28°C. Turf under 30% and 63% shade showed the highest turf and color quality. As the amount of shade increased further, turf and color quality decreased. Ranking of treatments for maximum root extension (MRE) was 63% shade = 81% shade > 90% shade = 95% shade in Study I, and 30% shade ≥ 63% shade = 81% shade > 90% shade in Study II. In the field, well established turf was subjected to 4 shade treatments. Acceptable turf quality was obtained up to 73% shade for 3 months. Shading resulted in an increase in clipping yields. Total nonstructural carbohydrate content (TNC) decreased linearly with increasing level of shade, but 47% shaded turf maintained a relative stable value after an initial decline."
