Abstract/Contents:"Turf grass varieties for Scandinavian lawns, sport turfs, and golf courses must be adapted both to the prevailing climate and to the mowing, compaction and wear stress imposed on these areas. The use of unadapted plant material may result in winterkill due to frost, ice encasement, anaerobic conditions, fungal diseases or a complex of these causes. However, none of the Scandinavian countries have any longer an official program for turf grass variety testing funded by the government. SCANTURF, a variety testing program entirely funded by entrance fees, was organised by the turf grass seed industry and researchers in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway in 2005. The program includes optional testing for ordinary lawns, sport fields and/or fairways, but not for greens where testing is organized as a separate project funded by The Scandinavian Turfgrass and Environment Research Foundation (Molteberg and Aamlid, 2007). The five Nordic countries have been divided into one northern (mostly continental) test zone (NZ) and one southern (mostly coastal) zone (SZ) with contrasting climates and different requirements to winter hardiness (Fig.1). Seed companies can specify whether they want their varieties tested in the northern, southern or both testing zones. The testing period is of one seeding year plus three evaluation years. This paper reports results from the first SCANTURF trials seeded in 2005 and finished in 2008."
