Abstract/Contents:"A study was conducted at the University of Florida to evaluate seashore paspalum germplasm irrigated with potable water and maintained under two maintenance regimes: putting green and fairway conditions. Eight greens-height and ten fairway-height accessions were established from sprigs (green) or plugs (fairway) and each test also had one seeded variety. One year after planting, whole plots were divided into sub-plots and ammonium sulfate was applied at 0.25, 0.50, or 1.0 lb N 1,000 ft-2 every two weeks (greens-height) or monthly (fairway-height). The study found: Significant dollar spot plagued the greens-height grasses during establishment. Greens-height 'Sea Isle Supreme' had the greatest dollar spot severity and 'Seadwarf' and 'Seaspray' had the lowest level of dollar spot incidence. On fairway-height selections, 'SI-99,' 'Salam,' and 'Sea Isle I' exhibited the greatest level of dollar spot activity and 'Seaspray' and 'Seaway' exhibited the least. 'Seadwarf' and 'Sea Isle 2000' were the two best performing cultivars when maintained at putting green heights. Top performing fairway-height cultivars were 'Seaway,' 'Aloha,' and 'Seagreen'. 'Neptune' consistently ranked poorly. No differences in thatch depth were observed between greens-height cultivars. However, N rates = 0.50 lb applied biweekly produced a 33% increase in thatch depth. Thatch depth among fairway-height cultivars differed with 'Neptune' yielding the greatest and 'Aloha' and 'Seaspray' yielding the least."
