Crop Science 30(6): 1368-1369

Registration of 'Transvala' digitgrass

The Digitaria decumbens Transvala (PI299601) is resistant to Belonolaimus longicaudatus and also to pangola stunt fijivirus transmitted by Sogatella furcifera. It was selected after intensive testing at the University of Florida and at locations in Surinam, Guyana, Venezuela, Brazil, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, El Salvador, Puerto Rico and Colombia.
