Abstract/Contents:"Fall color retention and spring green-up of the winter hardy bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon [L] Pers. cultivar 'Riviera') as affected by topdressing, cover and fertility treatments are being evaluated at The Ohio Turfgrass Foundation Research Facility, Columbus, OH. The Evergreen Covermaster (EC) cover extended bermudagrass green color into late November and 4 to 6 weeks beyond the untreated bermudagrass. Soil temperatures averaged 1.7 to 2.0°C (5 to 6°F) higher than the untreated bermudagrass. Crumb rubber and green sand topdressing only provided acceptable green color until early November, of 2005 and 3 to 4 weeks beyong the untreated bermudagrass. Soil temperatures of the topdressing treatments averaged only 0.335 to 0.67°C (1 to 2°F) higher than the untreated bermudagrass. Milorganite provided the second highest soil temperatures in October and November but discoloration due to a high nitrogen rate resulted in unacceptable color in November. Fertility treatments had no effect on fall color retention in November of 2005 or spring green-up in 2006."
