Abstract/Contents:Profiles several turfgrass species, including blue couch, Indian couch, carpet grass, ki-kiyu grass, and Agrostis. Discusses turfgrass species blue couch as "the best known and most extensively used turf forming grass for golf course purposes in Queensland." Describes Blue Couch as a prolific grower, preferring slightly acidic soil and best established by vegetative methods. Presents Indian couch as identical to bermuda, sensitive to frost, and recommended for inland districts as it is more drought resistant. Details carpet grass as suitable for fairways and tees, noting it is a dwarf grower with little need for cutting. States that ki-kiyu grass is native to British East Africa, but is considered "somewhat too coarse where better grasses can be grown." Concludes with Agrostis, mentioning that this is not the creeping variety, but spreads instead by multi-tiller roots.
