Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "Results are reported on two series of seedings of Kentucky bluegrass and bent grasses in four mixture combinations under varying conditions of soil acidity and available phosphorus with uniform nitrogen and potassium treatments. Data presented indicated that differences in the quantities of bent grasses in the seed mixtures, ranging from 5 to 20%, had no significant effect upon the proportions of the various species in the turf population. Both soil acidity and available phosphorus materially influenced establishment of Kentucky bluegrass in the turf. Proportions of the total turf contributed by this grass were significantly higher under conditions of low acidity and high phosphorus. The bent grasses showed a wide range of tolerance to the differential acidity and nutrient conditions of the experiment. Kentucky bluegrass percentages in the turf mixture declined steadily throughout the 4-year period covered by the first series of tests and the 2-year period of the second series under all treatments used. Strong competition by the bent grass is suggested as the explanation for failure of the Kentucky bluegrass to maintain itself in the mixed turf. The practical bearing of these results upon the question of the desirability of seeding mixtures of these species for intensively maintained turf is noted."
