Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to determine which of the tested commercial varieties, is the most suitable for overseeding purposes in Valencia (Spain)." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "overseeding was performed on Cynodon dactylon 'Princess' with 8 varieties of Lolium perenne: 'Belida', 'Grand Slam', 'Paragon', 'Paragon GLR', 'Pizzazz', 'Platinum', 'Ritmo' and 'Verdi', 3 varieties of Poa trivialis: 'Dasas', 'Solo' and 'Starlite', 1 variety of Lolium multiflorum: 'Tena' and 1 variety of Lolium rigidum 'Wimera'." Reports that "due to climatic conditions, bermudagrass turf did not turn brown completely and no great differences between the six overseeding dates were detected. As expected, all the tested varieties needed, more time to germinate when temperatures where [were] cooler." Concludes that "all the tested varieties are suitable for overseeding in Valencia, but in general terms, Lolium perenne varieties are better, above all 'Pizzazz', 'Paragon', 'Paragon GLF' and 'Grand Slam', due to their colour [color], growth rate and germination velocity. Due to unusual climatic conditions, best seeding date was difficult to determine."
