Abstract/Contents:"Even the most carefully planned greens overseeding programs can be ambushed by unpredictable factors such as variable air temperature, high winds and poor irrigation uniformity. PACE research trials conducted on greens height bermudagrass that was overseeded with perennial rye and Poa trivialis (rye/poa) demonstrates that there are techniques available that can help overcome some of these variables. The use of fabric covers that are placed over newly seeded turf can dramatically increase overseeded rye/poa density by decreasing seed movement due to wind and irrigation, and by marinating the higher temperatures needed for germination. In addition, chemical renovation (slowing bermudagrass growth prior to overseeding with burn-down herbicides) was as effective as conventional mechanical renovation in fostering rye/poa germination, growth and density. Use of chemical renovation reduces the time, money and greenwaste associated with convention renovation, and may cause less long-term damage to bermudagrass, thus helping to achieve a smother springtime transition back to bermudagrass."
