Laurie E. Trenholm, Shireley F. Anderson, Al. E. Dudeck


Twenty-nine cool-season turfgrasses were overseeded on a 'Tifway' bermudagrass fairway on 30 October 2001 and on a 'Tifdwarf' bermudagrass putting green on 1 Nov. 2001 at Gainesville, FL. Both studies terminated on 31 May 2002. On the fairway, grasses with best seasonal turf quality scores, which averaged 6.9 on a scale of 1 to 9 where 9 = best, included perennial ryegrasses 'Applaud', 'BMX-01-0613', 'Buccaneer II', 'Futura 3000', 'Integra', 'Peak', 'Playmate', 'Premier II', 'Prosport', 'Pro Select QT-1', 'Venture Green Supreme 1', and 'Venture Green Supreme 2'; rough bluegrass blend 'Cascade Blend'; and perennial ryegrass/rough bluegrass mix 'Venture Green Supreme +'. On the putting green, grasses with best seasonal turf quality scores, which averaged 6.8, included perennial ryegrasses 'Integra' and 'Pro Select QT-1'; rough bluegrasses 'Cascade B lend', 'Colt', and 'Sun Up'; and perennial ryegrass/rough bluegrass mixes 'Barenbrug Mix' and 'Venture Green Supreme +'.
