USGA Summary Points:We have developed a new method for dry ashing and high-throughput image processing of silica bodies in turfgrasses We found significant differences in silica body number between accessions of prairie junegrass as well as significant differences in spatial deposition and the leaf blade area occupied by silica bodies Preliminary results suggest that higher silica body count is correlated with decreased mowing quality. Silica body imaging may lead to rapid screening of native grasses that can perform well under mowing.
