Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study at New Mexico State University and at the University of California comparing 16 grasses (5 cool-season and 11 warm-season). States that "the objective of the study was to investigate the effect of different climate zones on establishment rate and winter survival of low input and low water use warm- and cool-season turfgrasses." States that "the study was conducted from May 2003 to June 2004 at new Mexico State University's Agriculture Science Center in Tucumcari, New Mexico and at the University of California in Riverside, California" and that the soil types used were Hanford fine sandy loam at the Riverside site and Redona fine sandy loam at the Tucumcari site. Also states that "visual ratings of percent turf cover were conducted monthly during summer and fall of 2003 and spring 2004 to assess establishment." Discusses the establishment results of all 16 grasses and states that "it took 262 days in Riverside and 293 days in Tucumcari for plots to reach 80% coverage...[and] based on the results of this study, low maintenance turfgrasses can be established from seed and/or plugs even in high elevation, arid and semi arid locations without winterkill affecting the seedlings. However, it may take up to 10 months for some of the grasses to reach full coverage."
