Abstract/Contents:Discusses overseeded bermudagrass stating that it "usually transitions from winter dormancy much more quickly in the Deep South than in the northern transition zone." Notes that in the Upper South and transition zone...overseeding with perennial ryegrass in the late summer or fall often reduces bermudagrass stand density the following year." Mentions that "the number of bermudagrass shoots per square foot of turf may severely decline in one year, a drop in aerial-shoot denstiy often occurs gradually for several years." States that "this loss is due, in part, to the competition by ryegrass plants for light. As a species, bermudagrass often performs poorly in the shade." Informs that "the shade tolerance of a bermudagrass variety may influence how quickly perennial ryegrass needs to be removed each spring...also, turf-management practices that affect soil moisture, the availability of light and the temperature of the soil may influence the recovery of bermudagrass from winter dormancy. Suggests that "several factors - including the agressiveness of the bermudagrass cultivar being managed, the competitiveness of the perennial ryegrass cultivars that have been seeded, the expected aesthetic level during spring transition and the timing of herbicide application(s) - deserve primary consideration when developing a ryegrass-removal plan."
