Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate infection and colonization of bermudagrass cultivars at different temperatures." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "these studies have permitted the formation of hypotheses as to the mechanism of plant death when colonized by the fungus and exposed to cool temperatures that induce dormancy."

USGA Summary Points:Colonization and necrosis of roots were extensive in 'Tifway' and less in 'Midlawn'. The C. transvaalensis accession was extensively colonized, but with only limited necrosis. Disease resistance could be due to the inability of the plant to respond necrotically to the fungus. This information will be used to enhance bermudagrass diseases resistance through traditional breeding efforts at Oklahoma State University.
