Entries in the millet genera Panicum, Setaria, and Pennisetum were screened for resistance to St. Augustine decline (SAD) disease. Some members of the millet genera Panicum and Pennisetum are resistant to SAD. Resistant Panicum species included P. virgatum, P. amarulum, P. stapfianum, and the cultivars 'Leonard' and 'Early Fortune' of P. miliaceum. Resistant cultivars of Pennisetum glaucum were 'Gahi-1', 'Common', 'Tift 239', and 'Tiflate'. All members of Setaria tested were susceptible to SAD.
