Abstract/Contents:"Traffic tolerance is an important attribute in Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) needed to provide quality playing surfaces at recreational sites. The objective of this field trial was to determine the response of Kentucky bluegrasses in the 2017 NTEP test to traffic during 2021. Three replications of 89 entries were seeded in September 2017 on a loam in North Brunswick, NJ. Traffic was applied in a strip across half of each plot using a combination of the Rutgers Wear Simulator and the Cady Traffic Simulator; two passes wk-1 with each machine were applied May through August 2021; the other half of each plot did not receive traffic. Plots received traffic applied to the same strip using a combination of the two machines during 2018 to 2020. Uniformity of turf cover (UTC) was visually assessed on traffic and no traffic plots before traffic was initiated (3 May 2021) and after 28, 56, and 72 traffic passes on 14 June, 3 August, and 30 August 2021, respectively. Area under the UTC progress curve (AUUTCPC) was calculated for each plot to integrate the cumulative effects of traffic. Data were analyzed as a 2 (no traffic and traffic) x 89 (entries) factorial strip-plot design. Kentucky bluegrass had lower AUUTCPC values in trafficked plots compared to non-trafficked plots. A significant traffic x entry interaction was detected for AUUTCPC; few differences in AUUTCPC were detected among entries that did not receive traffic, while there were many differences among entries within the trafficked strip. Entries with the greatest AUUTCPC under the trafficked condition were Barvette HGT, PST-K15-172, and BAR PP 7K426; whereas, Orion (PST-K13-143), Starr (GO-2628), Blue Knight, A06-8, DLFPS-340/3364, DLFPS-340/3444, PPG-KB 1320, Skye, Amaze (NAI-14-133), NAI-14-132, RAD-1776, Pivot, Aviator II (NAI-15-84), Heartland (NAI-14-187), Dublin (PST-K15-157), A16-1, NK-1, DLFPS-340/3553, NAI-15-80 had the lowest AUUTCPC under traffic."
