Abstract/Contents:"Mixture trials at Bingley in 1971-73 concentrated on response to artificial wear, and were followed in 1974-75 by (a) new 'intensive' trials at Bingley and other trial centres, using artificial football wear and with two levels of nitrogen: (b) the development and testing of an improved artificial wear machine: (c) 'extension' trials of mixtures in areas of actual turf use: and (d) studies on factors affecting wear tolerance in turfgrass species and cultivars. The mixtures, intended primarily for tolerance of heavy winter wear such as football, included some or all of five species - Lolium perenne 'Aberystwyth S. 23', Poa pratensis 'Baron', Phleum pretense 'Aberystwyth S. 48', Festuca rubra (equal parts of 'Highlight' and Canadian commercial) and Agrostis tenuis 'Highland'. First year results, particularly in the intensive trials, emphasize differences due to conditions for establishment at different sites; and underline the over-riding importance of Lolium perenne in almost all situations in the U.K.. Detailed studies on the wear tolerance of the various species are contributing to the understanding of results from the trials; Poa annua is included in these studies and they confirm its wear tolerance under U.K. conditions, as found in previous trials at Bingley and elsewhere. Tests are being made to compare directly the effects of real football wear with those of the artificial wear machine, to improve the reliability of comparisons between the different trials."
