Abstract/Contents:1983 update of test established 9/81 which includes Rebel tall fescue seeded alone and in mixtures with 10, 20 and 50% (by weight) of Adelphi Kentucky bluegrass, Derby perennial ryegrass, Kentucky 31 tall fescue or annual ryegrass. This test has four replications and is maintained at a 1.5 inch mowing height. Three pounds of nitrogen per 1000 square feet have been applied annually during the fall and early winter. The 1983 quality data was taken monthly from May through July and also in October and November. Visual ratings on texture were taken in May. Botanical counts were made in November 1983 by removing and counting tillers in four 4-inch diameter plugs. Summary of evaluations of Rebel Tall fescue mixtures are presented (visual rating of quality and texture; botanical counts; % tall fescue). Quality and texture ratings were not greatly different for any of the grass mixtures at any mixing rate although quality ratings were lowest for the Rebel-Derby mixtures. Tall fescue represented 100% of the turf in Rebel-Annual ryegrass mixtures and ranged from 60-80% in Rebel-Adelphi and from 23-64% in Rebel-Derby mixtures. Botanical counts of the Rebel Ky 31 mixtures could not be separated.
