manilagrass (both often are referred to as zoysiagrass) and, to a more limited extent, mascarene grass ( Forbes and Ferguson, 1947 ). Zoysiagrass, as a warm-season turfgrass characterized by the Hatch-Slack photosynthetic pathway (C 4 ), has an optimum growth

intraspecific differences of salinity tolerance in warm-season turfgrass species during germination and the seedling growth stage. Alkalinity (pH) effects on turfgrass germination. Alkalinity did not influence FGP or DGR in the present study ( Table 1 ). Our

Growing quality turfgrass throughout the year in the transition zone is difficult. The transition zone is identified as the area of transition from cool- to warm-season turfgrasses between the cool and warm regions of the world ( Beard, 1973

traditional and heat-tolerant turfgrasses are able to accumulate plant pigments (lutein, β-carotene, and Chls) over the growing season to allow the turfgrass to tolerate stress events. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the accumulation

Zoysiagrass ( Zoysia spp.) is a warm-season turfgrass used in home lawns and golf course fairways within the transition zone of turfgrass adaptation and in the southern United States ( Fry and Huang, 2004 ). Cultivars of Z. matrella (L.) Merr

another study, Sartain (2002) reported limited root mass in warm-season grasses in early spring as grasses come out of dormancy with maximum root mass recorded from May through August. These data would suggest that fertilization of turfgrass should not
