Abstract/Contents:1982 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 3 replications at 1 and 2", no irrigation, and three pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. annually during fall and early winter. Tables provide 1977-82 annual and 6-year average visual quality ratings (1 to 9;9=best quality) at each mowing height with significant differences indicated for 1982. At 1 inch, 6-year average ratings ranged from 4.6 (Enprima) to 7.4 (Adelphi). At 2 inches, 6-year average ratings ranged from 4.9 (Pennstar and Enprima) to 7.5 (Adelphi). Test 2, established 9/80, contains 88 named or experimental varieties in 3 replications and is part of the 1980 National Kentucky Bluegrass Test. The plots receive 3 pounds N/1,000 sq ft annually in fall and early winter. To obtain maiximum stress, plots are mowed at 1.5" and are not irrigated. A table provides March-October and 1982 average visual qualtiy ratings with significant differences indicated for 1982. 1982 average ratings ranged from 3.5 (Apart) to 6.9 (American).
