Abstract/Contents:Briefly describes the characteristics of tall fescue, stating that in comparison to other cool season grasses it "has the capacity to develop a deep root system that provides tolerance or avoidance of drought stress." Addresses the use of tall fescue on athletic fields, explaining that "the good wear tolerance of well-established tall fescue makes this grass a possible choice for athletic fields." Indicates that "Kentucky bluegrass is commonly mixed with tall fescue to increase the ability of the turf to spread laterally," providing recommendations regarding the standards of mixtures.
