USGA Summary Points:Phase I (year 1 completed): Pairwise crosses were made between cold hardy intermediatetextured types as well as cold hardy Z. japonicas adapted to the transition zone to finer textured species (Z. pacifica, Z. minima and Z. pauciflora) resulting in the production of 2,926 progeny. It should be noted that in this project we are attempting to build on the progress made in earlier work where we crossed cold hardy Japonica types with Matrella types which lead to the release of the cold hardy intermediate texture type, Innovation. This work should allow us to take another step toward a range of texture types that are better suited for golf course fairways and putting greens. Phase II (year 2 and 3 begun): Spaced Plant Nurseries were planted at three locations: 1,370 progenies at Olathe, KS, 1,608 progenies at West Lafayette, IN, and 1,661 progenies at Dallas TX (Table 1). The objective of Phase II field testing is the selection of experimental lines that have comparable/superior cold tolerance to that of Meyer with tees to greens turfgrass quality for the golfing industry in the Transition Zone. Attention will be paid to the selection for entries that exhibit no visible symptoms of large patch disease, hunting billbug susceptibility and shade tolerance.
