Abstract/Contents:Presents notes concerning several turfgrass studies conducted in 1964 and 1965. Announces that "varieties in the replicated portion of the 1964 turf trial ranked the same in 1965 for general turf quality as in 1964." Notes that one variety, "the most outstanding variety all season...[developed] considerable thatch under the 3/4 inch weekly mowing schedule." Briefly describes a study that focused on the ability of several turfgrasses to resist disease while in the shade. Reports that "B143, a very susceptible selection, was completely brown from Helminthosporium cynodontis attack under this light level before anything but a slight yellowing occurred in full sun and moderate yellowing under the 40% [percent] shade." Also mentions a study conducted to "determine the degree of uniformity in performance which might be expected of Arizona Common." Explains that "observations at three locations in Arizona and first reports from some of the other states indicate that, once established, the lots were indistinguishable." Concludes by discussing the seed yields of several species of turfgrass "in a seed production trial at Yuma in 1965" and providing two tables that detail color, growth patterns, and average turf quality ratings for turfgrasses introduced in 1965.
