USGA Summary Points:Sixty zoysiagrass progeny, each arising from a cross between a parent with reduced susceptibility to large-patch and a cold-hardy parent, are under evaluation after initially screening > 2,800 progeny for quality and cold hardiness. Progeny are being evaluated under golf course management conditions at locations throughout the transition zone for turf quality characteristics and reduced susceptibility to large patch The fungus causing large patch was inoculated in plots in Manhattan, KS and a natural infestation occurred in Stillwater, OK. Meyer had the largest percentage of plot area affected by the disease at both locations; many of the progeny exhibited no symptoms. Progeny showed a wide range of variability in turf quality characteristics including winter injury/hardy, spring green up, establishment rate, genetic color, leaf texture, turfgrass quality, and fall color. Among this group of experimental zoysiagrasses, there appear to be promising progeny that have good winter hardiness, resistance to large patch, and improved turf quality characteristics.
