Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to determine the "best fine fescue species"; "effect of seeding date, seeding rate, and extent of core cultivation on fine leaf fescue overseeding establishment in a mature buffalograss turf"; "effect of overseeded fine-leaf fescues on spring and fall turfgrass color retention in a buffalograss turf"; and "impact of overseeded fine-fescues on buffalograss turfgrass quality." Provides the data collected during the study, highlighting establishment rate; turfgrass quality; turfgrass green cover; turfgrass color; and species count. Reports that "sheep fescue-buffalograss mixture has given the best quality and color. The improved quality of sheep fescue-buffalograss mixture may be due to the more bluish-green color of sheep fescue that blends better visually with the color of the buffalograss cultivars used in this study, and the uniformity of sheep fescue-buffalograss mixture." Concludes that "there was a significant effect of fine leaf fescues on buffalograss turfgrass color retention and quality when buffalograss was dormant."
