USGA Summary Points:Sixty zoysiagrass hybrids, each arising from a cross between a large-patch tolerant parent and cold-hardy parent, are under evaluation after initially screening 2,858 progeny for quality and cold hardiness. Progeny are being evaluated under golf course management conditions at ten locations throughout the transition zone for turf quality characteristics and large patch tolerance. The fungus (Rhizoctonia solani) causing large patch disease was inoculated in plots in Manhattan, KS and Fayetteville, AR. Several progeny consistently showed better tolerance to large patch compared to Meyer in KS and AR. Progeny showed a wide range of variability in turf quality characteristics including winter injury, spring green up, and turfgrass quality. Among this group of experimental zoysiagrasses, there appears to be promising progeny that have good winter hardiness, tolerance to large patch, and improved turf quality characteristics, such as TAES 6095-83. Progeny evaluations will continue in 2018-2019.
