USGA Summary Points:At some locations in 2015, several new or experimental bermudagrasses provided turf quality equal to or better than established standards 'Tifdwarf', 'Tifeagle' and 'MiniVerde'. Several zoysia entries produced turf quality rivaling the best bermuda entries. The two seashore paspalum entries performed similarly in 2015, and as expected, both entries did not survive winter in the most northern sites. Ball roll data showed only a few bermuda entries with distances of least 100 inches under this medium maintenance regime. No seashore paspalum or zoysia entries produced a ball roll measurement of 100 inches on at least one rating date at any location. The maintenance practices for these two species may require adjustment for the 100-inch threshold to be achieved.
