Abstract/Contents:"Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) is a very popular grass for lawn areas in northern Arkansas and throughout the transition zone. Identifying adapted cultivars for the region remains a central focus of the University of Arkansas turfgrass research program. The National Turfgrass Evaluation Program is the predominant means by which cultivars are tested throughout North America. A tall fescue cultivar trial was planted in the fall of 2001 at Fayetteville, Ark. During the 2003 growing season, cultivars were rated for overall turf quality, turf color, and incidence of brown patch disease. The cultivars, '2nd Millennium', 'Inferno', 'Finesse II', 'Quest', and 'Turbo' were consistently rated high for overall turf quality throughout the growing season and were among cultivars with the darkest green color on a 1 May rating date. 'Kentucky 31' and 'Elisa' averaged poor rating values for both turf quality and color. There were no significant differences among cultivars in brown patch incidence during a disease outbreak on 28 August."
