Abstract/Contents:"Twenty-seven St. Augustinegrass (Stenotaphrum secundatum [Walter] Kuntze) cultivars were cut into 4-inch square plugs and planted by hand on 1-ft centers in College Station, Texas on 15 Aug. 1996. Irrigation and fertilizer were applied as needed to promote lateral growth of stolon, and plots were hand-weeded, mainly to remove weeds brought in with the original plant materials. They were visually rated monthly for plot coverage. Included in the study were Bitterblue, CSR, Delmar, Floralawn, Floratam, FX-10, Levi, MM 1, MM 203, Mm 302, NCSA 21, Palmetto, Raleigh, S 80-47, S 87-6, S 89-14, S 6-89-70, S 6-89-156, S 6-89-174, S 6-89-175, S 6-89-194, S 6-89-196, Seville, Texas common, TX 8208,, TX 8262 and Winchester. Several of these genotypes, including CSR and S 6-89-196, were fine textured. By 12 wk after planting, CSR, S 89-14, S 6-89-156, Floratam, Levi, Palmetto, S 87-6, Texas Common and Winchester were in the top statistical group for coverage. The genotypes S 6-89-70, MM 203, Seville, MM 302, Delmar, Bitterblue, NCSA 21, TX 8262, S 6-89-175, S 6-89-174, Floralawn, S 6-89-194, TX 8208 and S 6-89-196 were the lowest statistical group for coverage. Further evaluations will be conducted starting in spring 1997."
