Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted at Virginia Polytecnic Institute and State University "to determine how duration of perennial ryegrass competition affects bermudagrass cover and biomass accumulation." Provides detailed information on the methods employed to conduct the trial and states that "all sites were maintained at a 0.6-inch (1.5 centimeter) mowing height, mowed three times per week and fertilized as needed." Indicates that "bermudagrass cover increased with increasing cumulative noncompetitive growing degree days at all sites, but the influence on bermudagrass cover by cumulative noncompetitive growing degree days varied among sites." Concludes that for bermudagrass to remain healthy after overseeding it requires "time and heat units," and suggests that bermudagrass also needs "between 140 to 330 cumulative noncompetitive growing degree days at base 65 [degrees] Fahrenheit and 60 to more than 100 days of noncompetitive growth to achieve complete recovery."
