Abstract/Contents:Discusses the establishment of cool season turfgrass species from seed in New Jersey, suggesting that the ideal time is "late summer through early fall." States that "weather can be dry at this time of year, allowing for ideal conditions to cultivate soils, prepare seedbeds, and apply seed." Advises that "summer annual grassy weeds may need to be treated with a postemergence herbicide to produce a clean turfgrass stand and guard against these weeds producing additional seed in the fall." Recommends products to be used in this capacity. Emphasizes the potential importance of irrigation to the success of a late spring/summer establishment project. Notes that "summer turfgrass establishment is especially prone to diseases caused by Pythium and Rhizoctonia." Concludes that "the drawbacks of late spring and summer turfgrass establishment are numerous and the chances of seeding failure are high for reasons detailed above."
