Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted by Virginia Polytechnic Institute to better "enhance the appearance of turf during the spring transition from perennial ryegrass to bermudagrass." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "research trials were established in 2006 at Farmington Country Club, Charlottesville, Virginia, and in 2007 at the Virginia Tech Golf Course, Blacksburg, Virginia, to evaluate the use of partial-control techniques [including] drip, sponge, and strip, the methods by which Revolver was applied to the turf." Reports that "after the blanket application of Revolver, plots treated using all application techniques showed generally improved turfgrass quality when compared to the nontreated check. The herbicide and the number of partial-control treatments did not significantly affect the percent of bermudagrass cover." Concludes that "partially controlling perennial ryegrass using different application techniques can increase bermudagrass cover and improve quality...Only the strip application technique decreased quality during the partial-control period."
