Abstract/Contents:Bentgrasses are susceptible to a large number of diseases and other stresses that require a manager, usually a golf course superintendent, and they need constant attention for best quality. Best use of colonial bentgrass is on golf course fairways, although Poa annua can often be quite a problem. But current breeding of more aggressive colonial bentgrasses may someday renew interest in the species for golf course fairways. An early goal of plant breeders was to provide the golf course industry with seeded creeping bentgrass that would meet the establishment procedure. However, quality of the ensuing turf was not usually equal to that of the best established bentgrasses. Successful use of new varieties on golf course greens and/or fairways may gradually lead to broader acceptance by golf course superintendents. And breeding efforts continue to produce promising new bentgrass material.
