Breeder seed is maintained by LESCO, Inc in cooperation with the NJAES
. Seed propagation is restricted to three generations of increase: Breeder, Foundation, and Certified.
The entries included commercial cultivars and experimental selections supplied by several turfgrass seed companies, as well as, experimental selections developed at the NJAES. In addition to the replicated entries, 679 single-plant progeny plots from 12 families in 2000 and 72 plots from two families in 2001 were included in the respective experiments.
Additionally, 72 single-plant progenies from two families from the same unselected NJAES gene pool of plants utilized in the original experiment in 2000 were included in the 2001 experiment.
The germplasm collection, evaluation, and breeding program that led to the development of Citation Fore was initiated by the NJAES
of Rutgers University in 1962.
The parental germplasm of Manhattan 4 included plants from the PST breeding program selected for crown rust (caused by Puccinia coronata Corda) resistance, summer turf performance, or salt tolerance; selections from 'Manhattan 3' (Rose-Fricker et al., 2002); and germplasm from NJAES
, designated A96.
