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, While TifTuf and UGB-70 were top performers in the 2018 field trial. Growth chamber studies have been completed and analysis which will provide a greater understanding in osmotic adjustment mechanisms is ongoing. TifTuf had high performance in all measured traits, while some experimental lines also demonstrated their performance was less consistent across all measurements, indicating that multiple stress defense pathways are likely used by TifTuf resulting in high levels of stress tolerance.
