The development of high quality buffalograss [Buchloe dactyloides (Nutt.) Engelm] is depended on the texture, density, length of growing season and overall turfgrass quality. Twenty-six buffalograss cultuvars and accessions were evaluated for their potential as high quality turfgrass at the Texas Tech University located in Lubbock, TX. The top five turfgrasses tahat consistently had the best turfgrass quality grown on the High Plains of West Texas were TTU-227, TTU-196, 378, TTU-12 and TTU 232.
