Abstract/Contents:"NE 84-609 - Patent rights and sod certification have been obtained for the cultivar NE 86-609 ('609'). First official sales of '609' were made September 9, 1991 by the Crenshaw & Doguet Turfgrass Corporation. Production, marketing, sublicensing and research are continuing on this cultivar. Crenshaw & Doguet Turfgrass Corporation - Aggressive production of '609' has increased the acreage from 1.5 acres in May 1990 to 90 acres as of September 1991. Marketing of this cultivar has likewise been aggressive. Crenshaw & Doguet intend on continuing with their present course of production and marketing of '609'. '609' Sublicenses - Currently, California, Arizona and Oklahoma have been granted '609' sublicenses by Crenshaw & Doguet with the stipulation that they meet the certification standards developed in Texas. Royalties - Royalties from the 1991 season are likely not to be significant, however, projections for 1992 indicate that royalties should be of significant worth. Additional Releases - Two Nebraska Experimentals (NE 84-315 and NE 85-378) are advanced enough in the program that patent right information is currently being assembled for submission this winter. Additional experimentals are concurrently being advanced for release in 1992. Native Turf Development Group (NTDG) - The NTDG has made significant progress in the development of seeded buffalograss. Four test sites were established with 2000 nursery plants to assess sex ratios and performance of the five potential cultivars developed by the group. The five cultivars have been entered into the National Turfgrass Evaluation Programs' newest trial entitled "National Buffalograss Evaluation Trial". The release of these five cultivars is projected for 1993. Insect Research - Research on insect pests of buffalograss continues with emphasis on the "buffalograss mealybug" and chinch bug. This research is important for a complete understanding of buffalograss management. USGA Proposal - The University of Nebraska will submit a USGA proposal following up on our breeding and development work with buffalograss. This proposal will call for an enhancement of the project, specifically in the breeding and management areas. It is hoped that a portion of this project can be financed with anticipated USGA royalty income."
