USGA Summary Points:Data were collected from the 2015 SPN (1,750 progeny) in 2016 and 2017 with notes taken for turf quality, seed head color, density, height of seedhead exertion, and number of florets per unit area as an indicator of potential seed production capacity. Twenty-three entries were advanced and were used to plant three isolation blocks (Red #1, Red #2 and Yellow) in order to initiate our fourth cycle of recurrent selection. Entries from the 2015 SPN with highest seed yields, best drought recovery and turf quality were chosen as parents for 3 new 3-clone synthetic varieties. These Syn varieties were planted in Dallas, TX (2017) for seed production testing. Seed will be harvested in 2018, and planted as a RFT in 2019 for turfgrass quality/performance evaluation. DALZ 1512 and DALZ 1513, experimental synthetic varieties, exhibited better fall color in 2017 with turfgrass quality and spring greenup similar to the seeded checks. Establishment rate of these synthetic varieties is better than the vegetative checks.
