Minimal Daily Light Integral Requirements for Texas Lawn, Athletic, and Golf Cultivars

A study by Texas A&M AgriLife Research compares the shade tolerance of a number of different turfgrasses to determine how well each cultivar fares in circumstances in which light is reduced. According to the research, Bladerunner Farms’ Zeon and JaMur zoysiagrasses are amongst some of the most shade tolerant cultivars, not falling below 50% cover until approximately 70% shade.
