Digitaria species were established in field plantings in 1964 at Experiment, Georgia, and Gainesville, Florida, in order to observe cold susceptibility. Differential cold tolerance is exhibited by 13 species grown during two winters. Information on the cold tolerance of a few additional clones is presented. Cold tolerance is exhibited among species which have predominantly sterile forms, those propagated both asexually and by seeds, and those reproduced mainly by seeds. Comparative field ratings of winter survival are presented.
