Abstract/Contents:"Few discussions regarding turfgrass management on golf courses get more emotional than discussions on whether or not to overseed fairways, roughs, etc., with perennial ryegrass." Explains that "if bermudagrass does not have sufficient time to grow during the summer without competition from perennial ryegrass, the bermudagrass will decline over time." "In most climates, bermudagrass needs about 100 days of growth without ryegrass competition." The ryegrass and bermudagrass are not competing for water, nutrients, or carbon dioxide, but are competing for light. "When bermudagrass begins to come out of dormancy in spring, perennial ryegrass growth is at its maximum. As a result, the perennial ryegrass provides significant shade to the bermudagrass." Discusses the use of selective herbicides to aid in spring transition from perennial ryegrass to bermudagrass.
