USGA Summary Points:Significant differences in drought tolerance levels were found among commercial cultivars and experimental lines. Top performing lines in the 2017 field trial included the cultivar 'TifTuf' and the experimental line 'UBG-42'. 'TifTuf' had high performance in all measured traits, while other lines such as 'UGB-42' maintained leaf water content but had declines in photosynthetic rates, indicating multiple mechanisms may be involved in tolerance be utilized differently. Drought tolerance mechanisms will be further explored in controlled environment studies and in a repeated field trial in 2018.
