Abstract/Contents:"Turfgrasses are estimated to cover 2% of the United States land area, it is important to ensure lawns are sustainable while still maintaining ecosystem services (Robbins et al., 2003). Previous research has evaluated the sustainability of mixing species and cultivars. Cultivar performance was not accounted for in prior studies. Due to the biodiversity theory, it was hypothesized that more genetic diversity would result in less inorganic nitrate and ammonium leaching (Thompson et al., 2016). Sixteen cultivars were selected from the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials based on turfgrass quality, and commercial availability (4 Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) (KBG) cultivars, 4 tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Scherb.) (TF) cultivars, 4 fine fescue (Festuca spp.) (FF) cultivars, 4 perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) (PR) cultivars). Cultivars were grouped into various assemblage types (monocultures, 3-species mixes, 3-cultivar blends and 3-species by 3-cultivar mixes). Turfgrass assemblages were all similar in drought tolerance, soil organic carbon and soil microbial biomass. 3 cultivar assemblages exhibited higher percent green cover from 42 days after seeding until the end of establishment. Three species and three cultivar assemblages leached similar or lower nitrate than 3 species by 3 cultivar assemblages and monocultures."
