USGA Summary Points:In first-year data from six Kentucky bluegrass trial locations, a new statistical analysis procedure, AMMI, was found to more accurately predict top-performing grasses than the standard statistical procedure, ANOVA. These results may help users of turfgrass data to better identify the best grasses. A study at the University of Illinois showed that during the first year, two hand-held color meters accurately measured color and correlated well with human evaluations. A multispectral imaging system was less accurate in assessing turf color, was difficult to calibrate for density and texture ratings, and was slower to operate. Researchers at the University of Arkansas used a digital camera system and software to collect and analyze turfgrass data. The results from 2004 are encouraging and could possibly be used to replace some human evaluations.
