Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of tall fescue on athletic fields, stating that it is "an excellent choice for use on low maintenance, non-irrigated sports fields because it has the capacity to develop a deep root system that provides tolerance or avoidance of drought stress." Indicates that this species can survive under reduced fertility and tolerates insects better than many other cool-season turfgrasses. Suggests that "the good wear tolerance of well-established mature tall fescue makes this turfgrass an option for sports fields and other high traffic sites." Addresses mixtures of tall fescue and other varieties, detailing their results. Provides mowing, nitrogen application, and irrigation recommendations.
