Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted at the University of Minnesota to "evaluate alternative turfgrass species performance under low-input fairway conditions." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the trial consisted of 17 cool-season grass species...mowed at either 0.75 inch or 1.0 inch (2 or 2.5 centimeters)." Reports that "in 2006...colonial bentgrass with no traffic and velvet bentgrass under high traffic exhibited higher average turfgrass quality...In 2007 sheep fescue (Festuca ovina) had significantly better turfgrass quality than any other species." Concludes that "our research demonstrates that alternative cool-season turfgrass species may be able to perform adequately on golf course fairways under low-input conditions in Minnesota and other parts of the northern U.S. [United States]." Notes that "future studies should focus on cultivar differences, disease susceptibility, thatch development, long-term wear tolerance, tolerance to chronic drought (using rain-out shelters), soil fertility, and plant nutrition, and recuperative potential when grown with minimal fertility."
