USGA Summary Points:In 2019 (year 2), zoysia plots were maintained at a golf course rough mowing height (3.0 inches) under low-maintenance regimes receiving minimal-to-no pest control, nitrogen fertilization, and supplemental irrigation. The 2018-2019 winter resulted differences in winterkill damage among entries in West Lafayette, Indiana, which 19 out of 87 zoysiagrass plots, including zoysia checks, had significant winter damage and these plots had either 0% or below 5% turfgrass cover by the end of the 2019 growing season. In 2019 (year 2), preliminary results based on turf quality and other collected data indicates several entries that are consistently in the top performing group across multiple sites. In 2020 (year 3), data collection and attention will continue to be paid to the selection of entries that exhibit minimal-to-no visible symptoms of drought stress, insect and disease susceptibility, and winterkill, and the best golf ball lie to help reach the goal in identifying entries that perform well under low-input conditions, which will assist in lowering golf course maintenance budgets. In 2020 (year 3), golf course superintendents visiting the experimental locations for university field days will provide feedback and ratings of plots via a survey instrument.
