USGA Summary Points:A group of 10 superior selections of turf type bahiagrass was identified, vegetatively propagated and planted in larger plots to fully characterize these genotypes for turf potential. A second group of 10 lines were identified in late spring 2015 based on improved drought stress response The 10 initial genotypes have been evaluated for their ability to regenerate from stolon sprig pieces in two greenhouse experiments. Results from two studies have not been consistent. Follow-up field sprigging experiments are planned for 2016. The 10 initial genotypes were planted in Oregon and preliminary flowering data was obtained in summer/fall 2015 with more complete results expected in 2016. The field experiment of larger plots of the 10 initial selections was featured as a tour stop at the 2015 North Florida Turfgrass Field Day (October 7) and were viewed by approximately 175 attendees with signage indicating USGA grant support of this research. The performance of the 10 lines under 60% shade after one year is not acceptable. Only two or three of the lines show any potential for minimal cover under 60% shade.
