Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate 19 bentgrass cultivars under typical putting green conditions." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "a replicated variety trial was established on 23 March 1998 at Chenal Country Club (CCC) in Little Rock, [Arkansas]. The green on which the test was established had been constructed according to United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications in the fall of 1997 and had remained fallow until the spring of 1998...Fertilization and pest control of plots were done according to routine practices used on the remainder of the greens at CCC." Reports that "over the 3 years of the test, there have been several cultivars that have consistently rated very good in this evaluation. These included 'Crenshaw,' 'G1,' 'Century,' 'Grand Prix,' 'Imperial,' 'A4,' and 'G2.'" Concludes that "a number of improved bentgrass cultivars are well-adapted to the Arkansas region and produce a much higher quality than standards such as 'Penncross' and 'SR 1020'. These cultivars will provide superintendents the opportunity to produce superior playing surfaces for their clientele."
