Abstract/Contents:1983 update of 2 tests to evaluate new Kentucky bluegrass cultivars under different management regimes near Lexington, Ky. Test 1, established 9/76, consists of 30 cultivars with three replications each maintained at a 1" and 2" mowing height. Three pounds of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft have been applied annually during the fall and early winter. In order to obtain maximum stress, the plots are not irrigated. Tables provide 1977-83 annual and 7-year average visual quality ratings (1 to 9; 9=best quality) at each mowing height with significant differences indicated for 1983. At 1 inch, 7-year average ratings ranged from 4.6(Enprima) to 7.1(Adelphi). Test 2, established 9/80, is part of the 1980 National Kentucky Bluegrass Test. Included are 88 named or experimental selections with three replications. Three pounds of nitrogen per 1000 sq ft have been applied annually during the fall and early winter. In order to obtain maximum stress, the plots are not irrigated and are mowed at a 1.5" height. A table provides March-October 1983 monthly and 1982-83 annual and 2-year average visual quality ratings with significant differences indicated for 1983. 2-year average rating ranged from 4.1(Mer pp 43) to 6.4(TPI 96B).
