Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to evaluate the influence of seeding rate and weeds on the establishment of Cimarron little bluestem for golf course secondary roughs." Details methods and materials in the study, stating that "the soil was a Marietta fine loam. Soil samples were taken in July 2000 and 2002 and analyzed...The first study was planted [August] 2, 2000...Seed germination was 86%, purity was 70%, and weed seed was 0.05%; no dormant seed were reported. The second study was initiated [August] 9, 2002. Cimarron seed...featured 88% germination, 44.4% purity, 1.1% weed seed and no dormant cimarron seed." States that "in each study, seed was planted at five rates: 12.7, 25.4, 38.1, 51 and 63.4 pounds PLS [pure live seed]/acre...The experimental design was a randomized complete block with repeated measurements. There were three replications of experimental plots of 36 square feet each." Reports that "in both studies, higher seeding rates resulted in higher percent cover and the lowest seeding rate of 12.7 pounds/acre (14.2 kilograms/hecatre) showed poor performance." States that "this study indicates that establishment will require a minimum of two years. By the end of each study, there were no significant differences in cover among seeding rates of 25.4 pounds PLS/acre (28.5 kilograms/hectare) or greater...The highest cover obtained in any plot in either study was 86.7%. Obtaining 100% cover may not be a reasonable goal with little bluestem."
