USGA Summary Points:These trials evaluated many entries of perennial ryegrass, intermediate ryegrass, and Poa trivialis for their usefulness in overseeding bermudagrass fairways. Perennial ryegrasses were generally the best performers, either as single cultivars or in blends. Perennial ryegrass establishes quickly, is medium to dark green in color, and transitions well in spring. Many perennial ryegrasses performed well in trials at twelve locations over two years. Intermediate ryegrass may have potential for improved spring transition. However, our data on this trait was inconclusive. Poa trivialis entries had the lowest overall quality ratings at most locations and did not provide a smooth transition back to bermudagrass in spring.
