Abstract/Contents:"Little information exists on establishment vigor differences among fine fescue taxa (Festuca L. spp.) and on the effects N fertilizer levels or clover (Trifolium spp.)-inclusion during establishment of these turfgrasses. Five replicated field experiments in Indiana, Minnesota, and Oregon were conducted from 2019 to 2021 in soils with ≥ 44 g organic matter kg-1 and 58 mg P kg-1. Data collection continued for nine months after planting (MAP) to investigate differences among fine fescue taxa and determine optimal N fertility or clover-inclusion programs for the establishment of fine fescue taxa during in low-input sites. Six N fertilizer levels ranged from 0 to 122.5 kg N ha-1 during the first 2 MAP, and two treatments included clover-inclusion + 0 kg N ha-1 at seeding of fine fescues. The three taxa of the F. rubra complex {strong creeping red fescue [F. rubra L. ssp. rubra Gaudin], slender creeping red fescue [F. rubra ssp. littoralis (G. Mey.) Auquier], and Chewings fescue [F. rubra ssp. commutata Gaudin]} were similar to one another and required the shortest amount of time until 90% establishment (i.e., faster establishment) compared to hard fescue (Festuca brevipila Tracey). Providing 24.5 kg N ha-1 at seeding hastened establishment of all fine fescues compared to no N fertilizer (0 kg N ha-1 ). Applying 49 kg N ha-1 at establishment provided faster establishment than the 24.5 kg N ha-1 treatment; however, treatments receiving 73.5 to 122.5 kg N ha-1 during the first 2 MAP provided a similar rate of establishment as 49 kg N ha-1. Inclusion of clover with fine fescue resulted in slower establishment than fertilizer levels of ≥ 24.5 kg N ha-1 but still successfully established with all four fine fescue taxa."
