USGA Summary Points:Sixty zoysiagrass hybrids, each arising from a cross between a large-patch tolerant parent and coldhardy parent, were evaluated after initially screening 2,858 progeny for quality and cold hardiness. Progeny were 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. Ten zoysiagrasses were selected in 2018 as the top performers and will continue to be evaluated in 2019 for turf quality characteristics and large patch tolerance in Manhattan, KS, Dallas, TX, and West Lafayette, IN. Discussions are currently underway for on-site evaluation of these top 10 hybrids at several golf courses in the transition zone Discussion are also currently underway to potentially submit the top three hybrids showing cold hardiness and large patch tolerance in the 2019 zoysiagrass NTEP trial.
