Table includes Kentucky bluegrass infestation percentages on 7/8/87 as well. 'Mustang' and 'Atlanta' varieties (both infected and non-infected) were rated highest. The 18 varieties of tall and hard fescues in Test 2 were established in September 1986 and mowed at 2.0 inches. May, June and September quality ratings with a 1987 average are presented.
