Abstract

This study investigates the potential of several cool-season turfgrass varieties as perennial cover crop in maize production systems. The first objective was to screen modern turfgrass cultivars as candidates. The second objective aimed to identify unique germplasm from varieties obtained from the USDA-Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN). This report summarizes the field activities and preliminary results of maize production during the 2019 growing season.
