Abstract/Contents:"Turf managers are looking for cultivars that require less input for maintenance of tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass cultivars. Research has been done to evaluate mowing effects on cultivars (Dernoeden et al., 1993 Moore et al., 1989). Differences have been found between tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass cultivars for drought tolerance (Karcher et al., 2008). Digital image analysis is an effective way to measure percent green cover of turf (Richardson et al., 2001). The objective of this research was to evaluate Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue cultivars for the amount of regrowth between mowing and the ability to maintain green cover with less water during the summer."
