Abstract/Contents:"Twenty-eight zoysiagrasses, including 19 cultivars from NTEP program and 9 selections from Texas A&M Univ., Dallas, TX, were established at TAES-Dallas Center for evaluation in July 1996. DALZ9601, Emerald, HT-210, Cavalier, TAES4355, Zeon and Z-18 had the finest leaf-texture, Victoria and DeAnza had medium leaf-texture, and Miyako, El-Toro and J-36 were the most coarse leaf-textured entries. Cavalier, DALZ9601, Zeon, Emerald, Meyer and Palisades had darker green color than other entries. The most rapid establishment was observed for TAES4366 and TAES 4365. El-Toro, Jamur, Miyako and TAES4370 also exhibited a relatively fast establishment rate. Among the seeded entries, J-36 and J-37 were the first to germinate, and they had the highest seedling vigor and fastest establishment rate. Z-18 had poor low temperature resistance, and died during the winter of 1996-1997. Green-up and color retention data showed that Emerald, DALZ9601, Cavalier and Zeon had a longer growing season than the others."
