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 Two perennial ryegrasses, 9 new tall fescues, 2 Kentucky bluegrasses and 3 fine fescue, and 1 creeping bentgrass and three new colonial bentgrasses were released in 2016. Published or have in press over 4 referred [refereed] journal articles in 2016 27 Plant variety certificates issued and 20 PVPs applied for
