USGA Summary Points:Extensive genotyping of bermudagrass using DArT showed four distinct clusters formed by accessions of seven bermudagrass species; none of them was homogenous, suggesting serious misidentification in collections. Hybridization of existing UCR bermudagrass accessions continued, with emphasis on genotypes with desirable winter color retention, early spring green-up, and drought tolerance. A large amount of hybrid seed was produced and germinated, 770 new hybrids were planted. Evaluation continues of 12 our most promising bermudagrass hybrids in replicated trials across several climatic zones in California comparison to cvs. Tifway, TifTuf, and Bandera. Four best performing hybrids were chosen for tests at golf courses. The range of genetic variation of kikuyugrass has been expanded by addition of new accessions and expansion of the existing collection. The mode of pollination and hybridization in kikuyugrass is being studied with good indications of high tendency toward self-pollination. Selection among kikuyugrass was initiated for less aggressive growth, finer texture and good drought tolerance Evaluation of winter color retention continues among entries of bermudas, kikuyus and zoysias.
