Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate the competitive capacity of D. caespitosa in mixtures with the most often used amenity grass species in the temperate zone - Lolium perenne L., Poa pratensis L. and Festuca rubra L. during the sward establishment phase." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the field experiment with four replications (split plot design, one pot 2m2 [square meters]) was established by seeding...Deschampsia caespitosa, Czech variety 'Kometa', was sown in monoculture or in two-component mixtures with Lolium perenne cv. 'Filip', Poa pratensis cv 'Harmonia', Festuca rubra, ssp. rubra cv 'Blanka', F. rubra ssp. commutata Gaud. cv 'Barborka' and F. rubra ssp. trichopylla Gaud. cv 'Viktoria.'" Reports that "dry mass weight and number of D. caespitosa shoots were significantly influenced by the species companion crops in the mixtures, and the seed proportion of D. caespitosa in the seed mixture. These parameters increased under increasing proportion of D. caespitosa in the seed mixture." Concludes that "D. caespitosa, because of its erect bunch-type habit...must be dominant in decorative or recreation lawns in order to produce an attractive homogenous sward, but it is not able to create a complete sward permanently...Poa pratensis, according to...results, appears to be the best companion grass for mixtures with D. caespitosa. Their different dynamics of development allow them to establish well in the site. These two grasses together create a lawn with very homogenous texture and they complement one another's colour [color] during all the vegetation period."
