Registration of 'Transvala' digitgrass

, : Registration of 'Transvala' digitgrass. Crop Science 30(6): 1368-1369

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. Transvala is a stoloniferous perennial with narrow, abundant, upright leaves.
