USGA Summary Points:28 entries, including bermudagrass, zoysiagrass and seashore paspalum were planted at eleven trial locations across the southern and mid-western U.S. Entries of the same species were planted in separate blocks to facilitate the management differences needed among the species. Bermuda entries were the fastest to cover, followed by the seashore paspalum entries. Zoysia plots in many cases, took most of the 2014 growing season to achieve 100% coverage. The winter of 2013/14 damaged entries at four locations, requiring NTEP to resend, and cooperators to replant some or all entries at those sites. Bermuda, zoysia and seashore paspalum entry performance varied based on trial location. Several bermuda entries established faster, achieved higher turf quality, with better density, fall color ratings and ball roll speeds than standard cultivars. Several zoysia entries produced turf quality similar to bermuda. However, ball roll speeds were not yet comparable to most bermuda entries. There was no significant difference in performance among the two seashore paspalum entries.
