Abstract/Contents:"Most of the south-eastern Spanish golf course fairways have been planted with Cynodon dactylon L. Pers. (bermudagrass), which turns dormant and brown in winter when temperatures drop below 10¬ļC (McCarty and Miller, 2002). For this reason many greenkeepers overseed their fairways at the beginning of autumn with C3 species such as Lolium perenne L., Lolium multiflorum Lam. or Poa trivialis L. The greenkeepers decision is difficult to take, firstly because each of the mentioned species have advantages and disadvantages (rapid or slow establishment, low or high growing rate, dark or light green colour, high or low density, rapid or slow spring transition), but none of them are perfect. Secondly, because they also have to determine the sowing rate, often highly influenced by the budget available for the management. Furthermore contrasting indications can be found in literature. As an example, Volterrani et al., 2004 indicate annual ryegrass as a low cost species for overseeding bermudagrass whilst according to Guti√©rrez (2007) high quality American seed (L. perenne and P. trivialis) is to be preferred although it would require an increase in the golf course management costs. The objective of this study is to give support to some of the above important decisions to take and in particular: which species should be used? and at what sowing rate?"
