Shade impact on zoysia and bermuda

View Larger

Photo by Dr. Michael Richardson (@ArkansasTurf on Twitter). Two plots from a complex shade and C4 turf performance trial. The plot on the left is Lazer zoysia and the plot on the right is Tifeagle bermuda. These plots had light limited by covering with an 80% shade structure. Several levels of shade are being evaluated, but this photo clearly supports the benefits of zoysia compared to bermuda in low light conditions.
