Abstract/Contents:"In July of last year, we planted the greens native soil test at the research facility in Ithaca. The test included 19 bentgrasses, and with the help of some good weather, we had a very successful establishment. We began collecting data in August. The results of the seedling vigor and quality data collected in 1990 are found in the Table below. The cultivars that were the most rapid to established included Emerald, Putter, and WVPB 89-D-15, followed by Pro/Cup, Penncross, and Pennlinks. Carmen creeping bentgrass was very slow to establish, as were Allure and Bardot Colonial bentgrasses. While much of this data is very preliminary, there were very notable differences in the quality of the cultivars we tested. Top prize for 1990 goes to Forbes 89-12 (PRO/CUP) which had the highest ratings for both dates. High marks were also given to 88-CBL, Providence, Penncross, WVPB 89-D-15, and Putter."
