Abstract/Contents:States that "four species of the genus Agrostis are used for turf in the U.S. [United States]. Three of these are used in Ohio." Profiles creeping bentgrass (Agrostis palustris), colonial bentgrass (Agrostis tenuis), velvet bentgrass (Agrostis canina), and redtop (Agrostis alba). Mentions variety tests of creeping bentgrass varieties. States that "the creeping bents have the potential for making a nicer lawn when golf greeen-type management is applied. However, the colonial bents offer less critical management problems."
