Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study conducted to evaluate cool-season grasses with improved vigor, wear tolerance, and recuperative potential traits. States that the study was conducted at the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation Research & Education facility in Columbus, Ohio and started on May 21, 2003. Describes the maintenance treatments and the experimental design and states that "quality, traffic tolerance, spring green-up, and recuperative potential were evaluated using the rating system derived from the National Turf Evaluation Program." Provides results of the study and states that "all perennial ryegrass cultivars exhibited comparable quality. Bluegrass cultivars varied in quality"; "several of the improved perennial ryegrass cultivars were as dense as the bluegrasses in the spring"; and "tall fescue rhizome activity is dependent upon soil compaction and sward density."
