Abstract/Contents:Presents a debate between Australian turf professionals about whether to encourage the growth of introduced Agrostis grasses in Queensland. Discusses the differences in maintenance techniques between exotic grasses imported from North America and grasses native to Australia such as Cynodon. States that "amongst the cause which favoured [favored] the change were those that the long dormant period of the couch in the winter led to a deterioration of the greens just at the time when the playing season was at its height." Suggests that "there is positively no doubt that at least several varieties of the Agrostis grasses can be successfully established in Queensland." Concludes that larger golf clubs with more generous budgets may be able to sustain bentgrass greens, while smaller clubs may find it beyond their capabilities.
