USGA Summary Points:Continued progress is being made in the genetic improvement of our major cool-season turfgrasses. Increases have been made in stress tolerance, disease and insect resistance, durability, persistence, a lower growth profile, attractiveness, and seed yield. A substantial expansion of efforts to collect, evaluate, enhance and utilize new sources of turfgrass and endophyte germplasm initiated in 1996 is contributing greatly to improving resistance to many diseases and insect pests including gray leaf spot caused by Pyricularia grisea and dollar spot caused by Sclerotinia homoeocarpa.
