Abstract/Contents:"Field trials were conducted in 2000 and 2001 to determine the potential of converting pure stands of annual bluegrass [Poa annua L. spp. reptans (Hauskins) Timm.], maintained at a 3.2-mm height, to bentgrass (Agrostis spp.). Parameters evaluated included three overseeding dates and four cultivars from two bentgrass species. Overseeding dates were 1 July, 18 Aug., and 18 Sept. 2000 and 27 June, 17 Aug., and 17 Sept. 2001. Three creeping bentgrass (A. Stolonifera L.) cultivars ('Penncross', 'L-93', and 'Penn A-4') and one velvet bentgrass (A. caninai L.) cultivar ('SR7200') were evaluated. Initial bentgrass establishment was evident across all seeding dates and cultivars in October of the year of overseeding. However, the 1 July 2000 and 27 June 2001 overseeding dates had the highest levels of bentgrass coverage 12 months after overseeding across all cultivars except 'Penncross'. Coverage of 'Penn A-4' and 'L-93' increased to 72% in the 1 July 2000 over-seeding date, 24 months after the initial overseeding. When overseeded in early summer, velvet bentgrass 'SR7200' showed the greatest potential for establishment with annual bluegrass. 'SR7200' and creeping bentgrass cultivars 'Penn A-4' and 'L-93' exhibited the greatest potential for long-term competitiveness with annual bluegrass, while 'Penncross' exhibited the lowest potential."
