Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to clarify which varieties of Agrostis and Festuca are best suited for golf greens in two contrasting climates in Scandinavia" and "to create meeting places for discussions among breeders, seed companies and greenkeepers in order to encourage cultivar awareness and continued efforts into turfgrass breeding for northern environments." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "three varieties of velvet bentgrass (Agrostis canina L.), thirteen varieties of creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.), nine varieties of colonial bentgrass (Agrostis capillaris L.), four varieties of slender creeping red fescue (Festuca rubra L. var. trichophylla), thirteen varieties of chewings fescue (Festuca rubra var. commutata) and one variety of annual bluegrass (Poa annua L. var. reptans) were tested...During the four growing seasons, the trials were evaluated for establishment rate, turf quality (visual merit), tiller density, colour [color], leaf fineness, per cent living plant cover, [and] winter injury." Reports that "on average for varieties within each species, velvet bentgrass has the highest visual merit scores at both experimental sites."
