Abstract/Contents:"One hundred twenty Kentucky Bluegrass (Poa pratensis) cultivars were selected for the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) and seeded in June of 1996 at Olds College. Since this is the first year of the trial only establishment data will be presented. Area cover is a standard indicator for turfgrass establishment. Based on this standard, the Kentucky Bluegrass cultivars in PTRC's study were considered well established going into the winter season. The cultivars demonstrating the best overall area cover ratings were Nimbus, Platini, Kenblue, Baronie and Caliber for the 1996 evaluations. As this is the establishment year, significant differences in quality ratings were not expected (as only one quality rating was conducted in 1996). It is important to note that, once the cultivars go through a Prairie winter more distinct differences will be observable."
