We studied the emergence of 4 lovegrass accessions planted at 0.0,0.5,1.0,1.5, and 2.0 cm depths in Pima silty clay loam, Sonoita silty clay loam, and Comoro sandy loam soils in a greenhouse. Catalina boer lovegrass (Erugrostis curvulu var. confertcr Nees) emergence was superior to A-84 boer lovegrass, A-68 Lehmann lovegrass (Eragrostis lehmanniana Nees) and Cochise lovegrass (Eragrostis leh&iana Nees X E. trichopheru Goss & Dur.) in all soils and at all depths. Approximately 75% of the radicles of
