Evaluation of the Turfgrass Potential of Warm-Season grasses in the Northern Mojave Desert

Turfgrass Mojave Desert

Titre : Evaluation of the Turfgrass Potential of Warm-Season grasses in the Northern Mojave Desert

Identification : 2080-21000-018-24-N

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Start Date : Oct 1, 2018 // End Date : Sep 30, 2023

Location : Forage and Range Research : Logan, UT

Objectifs
Characterize the performance of lines of bermudagrass, zoysia grass, and saltgrass for turfgrass performance under limited irrigation and green color retention during late fall winter.

Approche
We will transplant clones of bermudagrass, zoysia grass, and saltgrass populations to a Washington County, Utah, field site in spring 2019. We will then maintain the plants under limtied (60% evapotranspiration replacement) irrigation while characterizing their turfgrass potential and measuring their maintenance of green color during cold temperatures in late fall and winter. Evaluations will occur over the course of three to four growing seasons. The best populations will be identified, selected, and hybridized for additional evaluation.
