Abstract:
The present investigation on “Evaluation of different turf grasses under prayagraj agro-climatic conditions” was conducted at Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology And Sciences, Prayagraj. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with ten different turf grasses replicated thrice. The different turf grasses were procured from Division of Floriculture and Landscaping, IARI, Pusa, New Delhi. Different Turf grasses were Cynodon dactylon (Bermuda Hybrid Selection-1), Zoyisa matrella (Manilla grass), Zoyisa japonica (Mexican grass), Cynodon dactylon (Bermuda grass Tif-419), Paspalum vaginatum Swartz (Seashore paspalum, Paspalum notatum (Argentine Bahia grass), Eremochloa ophiuroides (Centipede grass), Paspalum notatum Flugge (Bahia grass), Stenotaphrum secundatum (Saint Augustine), Dactyloctenium aegyptium (Crowfoot grass). The results revealed that the Crowfoot grass was significantly most promising variety with respect to Days taken for establishment (10 days), Days taken for complete coverage (44 days), Frequency of mowing (22.22 days), Clipping yield (2.51 g/100cm2), Recuperative ability (19.22 days), Longest root length (16.95 cm) was recorded in Bahia grass, Maximum root spread (40.07 cm) was recorded in Saint Augustine grass, Highest root biomass (2.22g/100cm2) was recorded in Argentine Bahia grass, highest chlorophyll content (4.91 mg/g) was recorded in Bahia grass.
