Evolutionary implications of allozyme and RAPD variation in diploid populations of dioecious buffalograss
Switching to less water-thirsty grasses, like buffalograss
, and installing water-saving sprinkler nozzles and weather-smart irrigation controllers--which also qualify for Water$mart rebates--is another way to cut down on water consumption.
Hops, hemp, and buffalograss
are examples of dioecious plants.

Augustinegrass, creeping bentgrass, buffalograss
, and rough bluegrass.
A few turf grass species that turn brown during their dormant season are zoysia and buffalograss
Infiltration and adsorption of dissolved atrazine and atrazine metabolites in buffalograss
SRAP has potential for candidate gene analysis of QTL (quantitative trait loci), and has been used to measure genetic diversity in pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo L.) germplasm (Ferriol et al., 2003) and to distinguish buffalograss
[Buchloe dactyloides (Nutt.) Engelm.] biotypes (Budak et al., 2004).
Although a large number of warm season turfgrasses are used, some common examples include bahiagrass, bermudagrass, buffalograss
, centipedegrass, carpetgrass, Saint Augustinegrass, and zoysias.

phenolic acids detected in buffalograss

Arvada, Colo., has turned to Legacy Buffalograss
to preserve existing landscapes and create new ones within the water restrictions imposed due to historic droughts.
Wasowski goes so far as to advocate planting lawns of hardy buffalograss
instead of the thirstier varieties that are commonly used now.
Most plants grow well in soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8, but some do better if the soil pH is a little higher (cabbage family vegetables, buffalograss
) or slightly lower (azaleas, centipede grass).
