Abstract/Contents:Discusses sod established from seed mixtures, explaining that "several grass varieties are blended together, to provide a broader adaptive base in realization of the fact that few lawns are likely to enjoy conditions ideal for one particular grass only." Suggests that polyculture sod, by being diversified, decreases the development of diseases such as stripe smut and Fusarium roseum and could improve buyer-seller relationships within the sod industry. Asks, "I wonder how many 'black eyes' might have been avoided had such sod purchasers been provided a suitable blend of grasses instead of one variety?"
