Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "compare the tolerance of velvet bentgrass cultivars to various types of winter stress with that of a control cultivar of creeping bentgrass under controlled conditions." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the four velvet bentgrass cultivars 'Avalon', 'Greenwich', 'Villa' and 'Legendary' and the creeping bentgrass cultivar 'Penn A-4' (control) were sown at a rate of 6.7 g [grams] m2 [per square meter] in 7.5x10x10 cm [centimeter] plots filled with USGA [United States Golf Association]-spec sand containing 0.5%...organic matter." Reports that "on average for hardening conditions and five freezing temperatures, all velvet bentgrass cultivars survived freezing marginally, but significantly better than 'Penn A-4'...On average for cultivars, prolongation of the winter conditions from six to twelve weeks caused a more dramatic decline in turfgrass survival under simulated ice cover than under simulated snow cover or without cover."
