Abstract/Contents:Presents a cultivar evaluation conducted to determine establishment rate, turf and mowing quality of 24 ryegrass cultivars at the Ohio State University Turfgrass Research Facility in Wooster, Ohio. Details the materials and methods used, stating "the plots were maintained at a 2 inch cutting height with clippings being returned" and noting the plots received three pounds of nitrogen per 1000 square feet a year, and irrigated to prevent wilt. Reports that Manhattan, Game, Linn and Elka "showed the greatest percent cover at the first rating date" , as seen in Table 9, while Omega, and Blazer were among the lowest. Notes that five months after seeding, most cultivars provided similar cover. Concludes by noting which cultivars had the overall highest quality ratings, fall color retention and mowing quality, shown in Tables 10 and 11.
