Abstract/Contents:"I haven't got very much to say tonight except that I have enjoyed traveling around this country and meeting people who are interested in turf research, seeing what magnificent results you get with your bentgrasses and the work that has been done with Merion bluegrasses, Zoysia and other promising grasses. In South Africa we make tremendous use of the various types and strains of bermudagrass. We have one or two other Paspalums which we use in various areas. We have tried temperate region grasses such as bluegrasses. They do very well in our winters but they find that our summers are very hard to bear."
