Abstract/Contents:"The 1980 National Kentucky Bluegrass Evaluation Trial was seeded in August 1980 at the Rhode Island Agricultural Experiment Station's turfgrass research farm. Eighty-four commercially available and experimental Kentucky bluegrass cultivars were seeded in 22 ft2 plots at a seeding rate of 2.5 pounds per 1,000 ft2 in a randomized complete block design replicated three times. A 5-10-10 grade of fertilizer was applied at a rate of 2.75 pounds of N per 1,000 ft2 prior to seeding. The grasses were maintained with an 18-4-8 or similar grade of fertilizer in May, September, and November to supply an average of 3 pounds of N per 1,000 ft2 each year. Pesticides and irrigation were provided when necessary. The grasses were mown at a cutting height of 1.5 inches, and clippings were not removed. Visual turf quality ratings (1=bare ground; 9=ideal turf) were taken each month throughout the growing season. Ratings were based on texture, uniformity, density and color. Winter color ratings were taken in March prior to spring greenup. A density rating was taken in October 1980 to reflect the rate of establishment after seeding. All data were analyzed at the 0.05 level of significance using the Analysis of Variance Procedure."
