Abstract/Contents:"Thirteen relatively new bermudagrass (Cynodon spp) genotypes, as well as Tifdwarf and Tifgreen bermudagrass, and Diamond zoysiagrass (Zoysia matrella) were established for this study in 1997. After establishment, half of the study was mowed at 0.125 inch and the other half at 0.188 inch. On 28 October, 1997, the study was overseeded in a split-plot design, with one half of each plot overseeded with roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) @ 15 lbs seed/1000 square feet and the other half with perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) @ 30 lbs seed/1000. After overseeding, all plots were mowed at 0.188 inch throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Mowing height differentials were once again imposed in early summer, 1998. The type of overseeding grass planted in the fall of 1997 affected turf quality throughout the summer of 1998, even though the overseeded grasses themselves had died out by early summer. At the 0.188 inch cutting height, Mini-Verde, Tifeagle, Mobile, MS Supreme, and Champion were rated in the highest statistical grouping for quality on each of the five rating dates where differences occurred whether they had been overseeded with Poa trivialis or ryegrass. With all rating dates averaged, Mini-Verde, Tifeagle, Mobile, Lakewood, MS Supreme, Champion, and Tif 94-18 were rated in the top statitical group for quality when overseeded with either Poa trivialis or ryegrass. When overseeded with Poa trivialis, Floradwarf and Tifdwarf were also rated in the top statistical group. At the 0.125 inch cutting height, only Mini-Verde, Tifeagle, and Champion were rated in the top statistical group for quality on all six rating dates whether they had been overseeded with Poa trivialis or ryegrass. When overseeded with ryegrass, Floradwarf was also rated in the top group on all six rating dates. When ratings for all dates were averaged, Mini-Verde, Tifeagle, Champion, MS Supreme, Mobile, Lakewood, and Floradwarf were in the highest group for quality when overseeded with Poa trivialis, whereas Miniverde, Tifeagle, and Champion were rated highest for quality when overseeded with ryegrass."
