USGA Summary Points:Continued progress was made in obtaining new sources of turfgrass germplasm. These sources are being used to enhance the Rutgers breeding program. Modified population backcrossing and continued cycles of phenotypic and genotypic selection combined with increasing sources of genetic diversity in turfgrass germplasm. This has resulted in the continued development and release of top performing varieties in the NTEP Five perennial ryegrasses, 15 new tall fescues, 7 Kentucky bluegrasses and 4 fine fescue, and 1 creeping bentgrass were released in 2015. Published or have in press over 2 referred journal articles in 2015
