Abstract/Contents:Discusses bermudagrass, stating that the "aggressive, low-growing and very persistent sod-forming turfgrass is actually native to Africa." Suggests that "because the species produces excessive thatch, bermudagrass requires routine dethatching." Profiles several varieties of bermudagrass, including "Champion", "Mini-Verde", "Patroit", "Mirage", and "Yuma." Describes vegetatively propagated, clonal-type bermudagrass and seeded, turf-type bermudagrasses.
Note:Includes sidebars, "Vegetatively propagated, clonal-type bermudagrasses", p. 25, "Seeded, turf-type bermudagrasses", p. 26-27, and "Ultradwarf bermudagrasses for golf greens", p. 28
