Abstract/Contents:"Acceptance of buffalograss as a turfgrass species in northern climates is somewhat limited by its extended winter dormancy. Management procedures that prolong green color retention in buffalograss turfs without a negative impact on turfgrass adaptation and quality would be desirable. Research at the University of Nebraska demonstrated enhanced color retention and turfgrass quality, when fineleaved fescues were overseeded in existing buffalograss turfs. The studys findings include: The resulting turfgrass mixture extended turfgrass color retention by more than two months compared to monostands of buffalograss. Blue fescue overseeded in the fall gave superior turfgrass quality when compared to Chewings and hard fescue overseedings. The blue-green color of blue fescue blended well with the color of buffalograss and resulted in improved turfgrass quality and appearance. Similar responses were observed for buffalograss and blue fescue mixtures maintained at fairway and rough heights of cut. The results of this research indicate that buffalograss fairway and rough turfs overseeded with blue fescue in the fall provide extended green appearance and enhance turfgrass quality."
