Overseed Trials on Fairway and Putting Green Bermudagrass

S. F. Anderson, A. E. Dudeck

Abstract


Thirty cool-season turfgrasses were overseeded on a ‘TifSport' bermudagrass fairway on 21 October 1998 and on a ‘Tifdwarf’ bermudagrass putting green on 6 November 1998 at Gainesville, FL. Both studies terminated on 31 May 1999. On the fairway, grasses with best seasonal turf quality scores, which averaged 7.3 on a scale of 1 to 9 where 9 = best, included perennial ryegrass cultivars 'Blend 1', 'Brightstar II’, 'Buccaneer II', 'Catalina', 'Charger II', 'Citation III', 'Gator II1, 'Paragon', 'Quickstart', and 'Roadrunner'. On the putting green, grasses with best seasonal turf quality scores, which averaged 6.9, included creeping bluegrass cultivars, 'DW 42', 'DW 184', and ‘DW 208' and rough bluegrass cultivar 'Winterplay'.
