Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted to investigate "the heat and drought performance of hybrid bluegrass in comparison to turf-type tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass." Details methods and materials used in growth chamber and field studies. Notes that "high performance in this study was defined as grass that stayed green and turgid longer when water was limiting." Concludes that "the performance of hybrid bermudagrass was impressive under 95Ā°F [Fahrenheit] temperatures and 100% ET [evapotranspiration rate] replacement in the growth chamber, but not so impressive under field conditions. In the field, the turf-type tall fescue provided the best drought resistance and overall performance."
