Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to compare the "differences in turfgrass quality and rate of spring greenup among four commercially available St. Augustinegrass cultivars and six experimental selections." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the experimental area consisted of a 10-inch deep modified sand root zone overlaying a 4-inch diameter ADS flexible plastic drainage system" and that "visual estimates of turfgrass quality were made on a monthly basis by two scientists." Reports that the conditions for testing were poor, since both years experienced drought conditions and that irrigation water had high salt content. Concludes that "the overall turfgrass quality ratings for the 1990 growing season were very poor due to the circumstances."
